Term Detail
GO term:sensory perception of sound
Synonym: hearing
Synonym: perception of sound
GO id:GO:0007605
Definition:The series of events required for an organism to receive an auditory stimulus, convert it to a molecular signal, and recognize and characterize the signal. Sonic stimuli are detected in the form of vibrations and are processed to form a sound.
