Animals have their hearing as a warning system for the first line of defence, which raises the alert. In humans, except from the basic innate “animal” reactions, we have our thoughts and feelings, with our sentiments and communication between people predominating. There is a short interval between the detection of sound by the cochlea and the perception of sound by the auditory cortex. However, during this time many types of interactions take place. A quarter of a second is a long time for a fast computer, but for our brains as well. Humans not only hear the sound, but can also be affected both physically and emotionally in many ways. There is no human being who has not felt the pleasant, striking feeling on his back at the sound of a charming music.
