If you wound the optic nerve, you merely see flashes of light,-- just as disease of the auditory nerve
merely means a humming in our ears.
I have just spoken of that morbid condition of the auditory nerve
which rendered all music intolerable to the sufferer, with the exception of certain effects of stringed instruments.
By contrast, cochlear implants bypass damaged parts of the ear and stimulate the auditory nerve
in 1996, auditory neuropathy (AN) is a sensory neurological hearing loss with special clinical manifestations induced by the damage of auditory nerve
branch of the VIII cranial nerve.
They reflect neuronal activity in the auditory nerve
In humans, NF2 is a relatively rare inherited form of cancer caused by mutations in the anti-tumour gene NF2, which leads to benign tumours of the auditory nerve
, Medical Xpress reported.
The potassium influx excites the hair cell, which in turn excites the nerve cell that enters the brain in the auditory nerve
They create the perception of the sensation of sound by stimulating the auditory nerve
using electrodes, which have a limited range of frequencies they can pick up.
But the first recordings of auditory nerve
cells firing inside a spider brain suggest that the Phidippus audax jumping spider picks up airborne sounds from at least three meters away, says Ronald Hoy of Cornell University.
EAS represents the latest innovation in hearing implants, and is the combination of two technologies: the revolutionary Synchrony cochlear implant that stimulates the auditory nerve
for high-frequency hearing loss, and the Sonnet EAS audio processor, with built-in acoustic amplification for low-frequency hearing loss.
It is generated by synchronous firing of neurons along auditory nerve
, cochlear nuclei, superior olivary nucleus, lateral lemniscus, and inferior colliculus.
