5 True/False Questions
transduction → Conversion of one form of energy into another. In sensation, the transforming of stimulus energies into neural impulses.
binocular cues → depth cues, such as interposition and linear perspective, available to either eye alone.
sensorineural hearing loss → Hearing loss caused by damage to the cochlea's receptor cells or to the auditory nerves; also called nerve deafness.
cochlear implant → A membrane inside the cochlea which vibrates in response to sound and whose vibrations lead to activity in the auditory pathways.
Gate-control theory → brain determines pitch by the place on the basilar membrane, works best for high pitch
