Example text

The nerve impulses flow along the eighth nerve into the brainstem and eventually to the brain or cortex. The pathways from the eighth nerve to the brain are known as the central auditory pathways or the CANS. Transmission of information in the CANS is electrochemical, in the form of neurochemicals released into the synaptic junctions picked up by the next-level neurons causing a neural discharge. edu/ intro/) . The central auditory pathways are a complexity of neurons interconnected in intricate ways.

Thus dB SPL is measured with respect to the sound reference pressure, Pr = 20 mPa and this is a very useful measure of sound range. 5 Simple and Complex Sounds A simple sound has a single frequency regardless of amplitude or SPL. Thus, 1000 Hz, 250 Hz, and 12,500 Hz are all simple sounds. The term pure tone is sometimes used to denote a sound at a single frequency. Pure tones are used in measuring hearing and hearing loss (see Chapter 2). A simple sound is produced by a single vibrating mass (sound source) producing an audible sound (of 0 dB SPL or greater); the sound is of a single frequency.

1 Some Terminology Used in Describing Anatomical Structures Before considering the specifics of the anatomical structures that receive and transmit sound and deliver it to the brain for processing, some of the terminology used in describing anatomical structures will be presented. The term frontal view is used to describe a structure as seen from the front, whereas dorsal view refers to a back or rear perspective. 11. In addition to these four perspectives, anatomical structures are sometimes described in relation to each other.
