Nerve cells can be entrained to stimulation.  The EEG reading can be made to
fluctuate with the sounds that a person is hearing.
More simplely said, put two drums next to each other and put sand on the one
that is not to be played.   When you play the one without sand, it will
cause the
one with sand on it to vibrate.  You can see the sand bouncing around.
