vestibulocochlear nerve structural organization Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process that contributes to the act of creating the structural organization of the vestibulocochlear nerve. This process pertains to the physical shaping of a rudimentary structure. This sensory nerve innervates the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear. The vestibular branch innervates the vestibular apparatus that senses head position changes relative to gravity. The auditory branch innervates the cochlear duct, which is connected to the three bony ossicles which transduce sound waves into fluid movement in the cochlea. (Gene Ontology, GO_0021649)
