New research has revealed that termites evolved from cockroaches around 170 million years ago. Biologists used genetic analysis of 48 termite species around the world to examine the origins of the highly social insects, which live in large nests. While termites are commonly called ‘white ants’ in some parts of the world, the researchers found the insects are more closely related to cockroaches, splitting from them during the mid-Jurassic period in Africa or Asia. Both insects are well known pests, with some species of termites destroying wooden supports and joists in buildings while four species of cockroach eat human food.
The new device uses an earpiece that communicates, via wireless technology, with a plastic retainer in the mouth. This allows it to bypass the ear, sending signals to the brain via nerves on the tongue. Our ability to hear depends on sound waves entering the ear, which cause the eardrum to vibrate. These vibrations are passed to the cochlea - a coiled structure in the inner ear - where tiny hair cells send signals to the brain via the auditory nerve. Anything that interferes with this (a blockage, or damage to the cocroger dhlea, the hair cells or the auditory nerve) can lead to hearing loss. They do this using microphones and a sound processor outside the ear to transmit information to an implant in the inner ear, which then generates electrical impulses to stimulate the auditory nerve. This is different from hearing aids, which simply amplify sound as it is passed into the inner ear. Although cochlear implants can be highly successful for people born deaf, the required drilling through the bone behind the ear can cause additional damage. The new technology, being developed at Colorado State University in the U. S. , uses the thousands of nerves.
