By which process do neurons transmit information within the nervous system

electro-chemical

What form of deafness is caused by disease to the three tiny bones of the inner ear
What are the tiny hairs that are found in the cochlea

cilia

What is the purpose of the myelin sheath

What is the purpose of the myelin sheath?

RIGHT Answer--- The myelin sheath serves as an insulator for the axon.

What are the photoreceptors on the retina called

Cones and Rods

What is the largest part of the forebrain

cerebrum


This is the cerebrum, where higher-order thought processes occur. The cerebrum is responsible for mental processes such as memory recall, language, art, emotional control and many fine motor skills like the ability to write (or text).
What are the two major divisions of the overall nervous system

the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system

Where does light go after it enters through the cornea

pupil then lense

What form of deafness is caused by damage to the cilia

stimulation deafness

How does the brain tell from which direction a sound comes

For telling if a sound is coming from the left or the right, direction is mostly determined by amplitude. This is easily done because one's ears are located on the left and right side of one's head. However, we do not have ears on the front and back of our heads(thank God, that would look silly). So how are we able to tell whether or not a sound comes from the front or the rear. This is done with the following design:

The part of your ear that's all cartilage (pinna) is shaped kind of like a funnel - but a shallow, really irregular one. Depending on the direction the sound comes from, it hits the ear in a different way, altering the frequencies that get amplified. Think of an instrument - a guitar has a lot of space for vibrations, so bigger, low-pitched sounds get amplified; a piccolo has almost no space, so very small high-frequency vibrations are amplified and any lower-frequency waves hit the inner wall of the instrument and get silenced. Every one of the little valleys and furrows in the ear alter the pitch slightly, canceling out some frequencies and amplifying others. This means that sounds from above, behind, or below you have been altered in very specific ways by the time they reach the auditory canal, and these alterations clue you in to the "angle of impact".
