7. Which are then transmitted to the fluid contained in the compartments of the cochlea.
8. The mechanical variations produced by the stirrup on the fluid are
9. Transmitted to the basement membrane of the cochlea. This membrane supports the hair cells, which respond to different frequencies of sounds. when the spines or cilia displace the fluid that surrounds them,
10. This produces electrochemical signals, which are sent thru nerve cells along the auditory nerve to the brain where the signals are perceived as tones.
