|Terminal nuclei of the vestibular nerve, with their upper connections. The inner Ear is the bony labyrinth, a system of passages comprising two main functional parts the organ of hearing or Cochlea The semicircular canals are three half-circular interconnected tubes located inside each Ear that are the equivalent of three Gyroscopes located in three orthogonal Hair cells are the Sensory receptors of both the Auditory system and the Vestibular system in all Vertebrates. The cupula is a structure in the Vestibular system, sensing Proprioception. (Schematic. )|
1. Cochlear nerve, with its two nuclei. The cochlear nerve (also auditory nerve or VIIIth nerve) is part of the Vestibulocochlear nerve, (or 8th Cranial nerve) that is found in higher
2. Accessory nucleus. The spinal accessory nucleus lies within the cervical Spinal cord (C1-C5 in the ventral horn
3. Tuberculum acusticum.
4. Vestibular nerve.
5. Internal nucleus.
6. Nucleus of Deiters. The lateral vestibular nucleus ( Deiters’s nucleus) is the continuation upward and lateralward of the Principal nucleus, and in it terminate many of the ascending
7. Nucleus of Bechterew. The superior vestibular nucleus ( Bechterew ’s nucleus) is the dorso-lateral part of the Vestibular nucleus and receives collaterals and terminals from
8. Inferior or descending root of acoustic.
9. Ascending cerebellar fibers. The cerebellum ( Latin: "little brain" is a region of the Brain that plays an important role in the integration of sensory perception
10. Fibers going to raphé. A raphe has different uses In science Pronounced "RAY-fee") it is most commonly used when describing Diatoms, Seeds, and Animal
11. Fibers taking an oblique course.
13. Inferior sensory root of trigeminal. The trigeminal nerve (the fifth Cranial nerve, also called the fifth nerve or simply V) is responsible for sensation in the face
14. Cerebrospinal fasciculus.
15. Raphé. A raphe has different uses In science Pronounced "RAY-fee") it is most commonly used when describing Diatoms, Seeds, and Animal
16. Fourth ventricle. The fourth ventricle is one of the four connected fluid-filled cavities within the human Brain.
17. Inferior peduncle. The upper part of the posterior district of the Medulla oblongata is occupied by the inferior peduncle, a thick rope-like strand situated between the lower part of the Fourth Origin of striæ medullares. Winding around the Inferior peduncle and crossing the Area acustica and the Medial eminence are a number of white strands the striae medullares, which

The vestibular nerve is one of the two branches of the Vestibulocochlear nerve (the cochlear nerve being the other). Latin ( lingua Latīna, laˈtiːna is an Italic language, historically spoken in Latium and Ancient Rome. This is a list of the subjects in Gray's Anatomy: IX Neurology The vestibulocochlear nerve (also known as the auditory or acoustic nerve) is the eighth of twelve Cranial nerves, and is responsible for transmitting sound Medical Subject Headings ( MeSH) is a huge Controlled vocabulary (or metadata system for the purpose of indexing journal articles and books Elsevier, the world's largest Publisher of Medical and Scientific literature, forms part of the Reed Elsevier group The vestibulocochlear nerve (also known as the auditory or acoustic nerve) is the eighth of twelve Cranial nerves, and is responsible for transmitting sound The cochlear nerve (also auditory nerve or VIIIth nerve) is part of the Vestibulocochlear nerve, (or 8th Cranial nerve) that is found in higher It goes to the semicircular canals via the vestibular ganglion. The semicircular canals are three half-circular interconnected tubes located inside each Ear that are the equivalent of three Gyroscopes located in three orthogonal The vestibular ganglion (also called Scarpa's ganglion) is the Ganglion of the Vestibular nerve. It receives positional information.
Axons of the vestibular nerve synapse in the vestibular nucleus on the lateral floor and wall of the fourth ventricle in the pons and medulla. The vestibular nuclei are the Cranial nuclei for the Vestibular nerve. The fourth ventricle is one of the four connected fluid-filled cavities within the human Brain. The pons (sometimes pons Varolii after Costanzo Varolio) is a structure located on the Brain stem.
It arises from bipolar cells in the vestibular ganglion, ganglion of Scarpa, which is situated in the upper part of the outer end of the internal auditory meatus. A bipolar cell is a type of Neuron which has two extensions Bipolar cells are specialized sensory neurons for the transmission of special senses The vestibular ganglion (also called Scarpa's ganglion) is the Ganglion of the Vestibular nerve. The internal acoustic meatus (also internal auditory meatus) is a canal in the Temporal bone of the skull that carries nerves from inside the cranium towards the middle
The peripheral fibers divide into three branches (some sources list two):
