Question 5 3.6 out of 3.6 points What is the function of the eustachian tube?
Answer: Response Feedback: The correct answer is to help alleviate pressure in the middle ear. The eustachian tube helps to adjust pressure in different altitudes and prevent damage to the tympanic membrane (eardrum). The other answers are incorrect because the auditory canal transmits sound from the outer ear to the middle ear. The ossicles transmits sound from the middle ear to the inner ear. The auditory liquids in the cochlea and the organ of Corti transmit sound from the inner ear to the cerebral cortex and into the brain.
