Auditory Neuroscience

When you hear music, a telephone call, a pin drop, your auditory system…

  • converts sound into vibrations of the three middle ear bones
  • the last middle ear bone is attached to the cochlea, which transforms vibration to electric potentials inside the sensory hair cells
  • which creates action potentials in auditory-nerve fibers (axons)
  • which are processed by the auditory pathway located in your brain
