However, Elizabeth Castillo's Granddaughter's ear trick is the icing on the cake. 

Medical Report About The Ear Movement

A TikToker volunteered to solve the mystery behind the strange ear movement. The user shared that the girl can move her tensor tympani muscles. Healthline also has a report concerning the ear. Their report states that the human ear has three segments. This includes the external, middle, and inner ear. There are two muscles in the middle ear and the tensor tympani muscle is one. The tympanic cavity is the hollow space of the middle ear. 

The eardrums vibrate when sound waves penetrate the external ear. The vibration is then sent to the three smallest bones in the body called ossicles. The report further states that the muscles in the middle ear can regulate the movement of the ossicles. When loud songs are heard, the muscles contract thereby reducing the vibration of the bones. When this happens it is called an acoustic reflex. This is also a very rare thing people can do. 

TikTokers Comment On The Viral Video

A lot of TikTok users could not conceal their amazement over the ear trick. Some users wished they could do the same thing. Others commented on how unique the little girl was. However, some users stated they could do the same. A user shared that they do it all the time. Another commented they do it when in high altitudes or airplanes. While another user joked about the ability being the "True definition of 'selective hearing!'" The video just proves the human body is unique in many ways.
