- The branches of the neuron body which receive electrical signals from the terminal arbors of other neurons.
- The printout or graph of brain wave patterns from an instrument that amplifies electrical fluctuations of the brain.
- The sensory translation of physical vibrations which occur in nature.
major portion of the 8th cranial nerve. It transmits encoded auditory
signals to the central nervous system and eventually to both the right
and the left temporal lobes of the brain.
skeletal muscles, coordination of voluntary muscles, receives and sends
impulses but is not a reflex center. Composed of neurons with large and
of tones based upon the natural harmonic series that have been adjusted
upward or downward to form a particular musical system.
- Identification of the origin of a sound in space.

collective term for all the brain parts except the cerebellum and
cerebrum. Includes the medulla, midbrain, thalamus, hypothalamus, and
- The long part of the neuron which transfers impulses from the nerve body to the tips of the arbors.
- The portion of the neuron which contains the cell nucleus and cytoplasm and from which protrude the dendrites.
space between dendrites of one neuron and the terminal arbors of the
axon of another neuron. While these neural "branches" don't touch,
electrical signals pass across these gaps.
