Project Description

This spread describes how sound information is received and transmitted by the cochlear nerve. Starting from the outer ear, our design allows the reader to follow the anatomical structures involved in the auditory pathway in a sequential order. Actual spatial relationships between structures (e.g., the inner ear in the petrous bone) are illustrated to contextualize the pathway as a whole. This collaborative exercise was meant to simulate the workflow of a production team, and our design followed a common style sheet developed by the class.
