The purpose for this experiment was to measure the reaction time for auditory stimuli using a measuring ruler and compare to visual cue. In auditory pathway, once the auditory signals arrive into inner ear, the Cochlear hair cells which is he auditory receptor cells, in the organ of Corti of the inner ear receive the sensory stimuli (Hudspeth 2014). There are two types of cochlear hair cells: the inner hair cell that carry out transmitting the signal to the rest of the auditory pathway, and outer cells that mediate the transmitting of information (Hudspeth 2014). According to (Tong, 2013), the cochlear hair cells or presynaptic neurons synapse with spiral ganglion, which are the first afferent nerve fibers. The basolateral membrane of the
