Re: New Scientist Question

Greg, when the eustacian tubes open, the middle ear space effectively becomes a
part of the auditory mechanism thus enlarging that mechanism by quite some bit.
When one yawns there is an effect a bit like sticking one's head in a barrel
which is caused by the tube opening and this is what primarily causes the
perceived effect to the music.
