Localization 101: Change the shape of your ears and change your ability to localize the source of the sound (Journal of Neuroscience 5 March 2018.) Whether by adding an decorative ear cuff piercing or surgery for skin cancer at the ear, modifying the shape of your ear will disturb your sense of localization, but only for a few days. Eventually the brain will relearn using the new status quo. Next time you slip on that baseball cap over the top half of your ears, expect to have some trouble hearing where the ping of your golf ball ricocheted off the tree! :)
