Nerves in the ear respond to the mechanical stress of soundwaves and transmit the stress/sound accoundingly (super simplified answer)
Auditory receptors transmit sound waves from the inside of the ear to the brain.
Cochlear nerve (division of the VII cranial nerve)
The auditory nerve carries impulses to the auditory area of the brain for interpretation.
the auditory nerve
The inner ear contains the receptors for sound which convert fluid motion into action potentials that are sent to the brain to enable sound perception. The airborne sound waves must be transferred into the inner ear for hearing to occur.
The receptors for sound are the 'cilia' ... tiny hairs that line the inner surface of the cochlea in the inner ear. Sound vibrations are directed into the cochlea by means of the eardrum and the bones of the middle ear, where the cilia move mechanically and excite the nerve endings to which they're attached.
Sound waves enter the ear, go through the ear canal to the ear drum, through the middle ear to the inner ear where the sound wave (vibrations) reach a mechanism called a cochlea which converts the vibrations to electrical impulses. The electrical information is guided via nerve cells to the brain which interprets the electrical information as sounds.
The function of the eardrum in the middle ear is to vibrate sound waves into the year. It transmits sound from the environment into the ossicles found in the middle ear.
The simple answer: In the inner ear the cochlea (the roundish wound up thing that looks a little like a snail shell to me), picks up vibrations from the eardrum (AKA Tympanic membrane) which are then converted to nerve impulses, which are received by the brain as sound.
The ossicles amplify the sound. They send the sound waves to the inner ear and into the fluid-filled hearing organ (cochlea). ... The auditory nerve sends these impulses to the brain. The brain then translates these electrical impulses as sound.
transmits sound from the outer ear to the inner ear. -Drkanswers Your welcome! =) Hope this helped!! Bye!
AKA Stapes. it transmits sound vibrations from the incus to the membrane in the inner ear. hope this helps!
The inner ear is responsible for converting sound waves into neural impulses that are sent to the brain.
starts with the tympanic membrane or ear drum which transmits the sound wave to 3 smal bones in the inner ear which turn the mechanical energy into electrical energy at the acustic nerve which then sends it along to the brain to be interpreted.
The vestibulocochlear nerve also known as the eighth cranial nerve transmits sound and equilibrium and is common to the hearing and equilibrium functions of the inner ear.
The outer ear directs sound vibrations through the auditory canal to the eardrum, which is stretched across the end of the auditory canal and which transmits sound vibrations to the middle ear. There a chain of three tiny bones conducts the vibrations to the inner ear. Fluid inside the cochlea of the inner ear stimulates sensory hairs; these in turn initiate the nerve impulses that travel along the auditory nerve to the brain.
The auditory nerve carries auditory impulses to the brain.
it is for balance and sound
Sound waves hit the eardrum. The eardrum vibrates in response to the sound waves. These sound vibrations are amplified and transmitted by the auditory ossicles of the middle ear to the inner ear where they are changed into electrical energy and sent to the brain for interpretation.
