August 17, 2013 - Research on How We Hear Could Lead to Help for the Hearing Impaired by VOA Science in a Minute published on 2013-08-17T04:10:13Z Today we'll hear about the discovery of a new meat-eating animal. You've probably heard stories about people having near-death visions of light and tunnels. Turns out that those visions just might be the way our brain responds to dying. And, did you know that we hear not only by sound entering our ears... but also from vibrations detected by our skulls? A California scientist tells us about his research into how we hear and how much of what we hear is in our heads. This and more are coming up for you on VOA's science, health and technology magazine, "Science World."
