The auditory nerve moves stimulus through electrical impulses that proceed along the auditory nerve pathway. From cochlea, the electrical impulse moves to the semicircular canals. From these the electrical impulse moves to both auditory areas of the brain. Auditory information is channeled to both areas of the brain from each ear pathway providing "binaural information."
