Q8.    Explain the following:

         (c) Mechanism through which a sound produces a nerve impulse in the inner ear.

Answers (1)

From the perilymph, the vibrations are transferred to the scala vestibuli of the cochlea and then to the scala media through Reissner's membrane and stimulate the sensory hair of the organ of Corti. The impulses thus received by the hair cells are carried to the brain through the auditory nerve where the sensation of hearing is felt.
