SOUND travels along
the auditory nerve,
to parts of the brainstem :
cochlear nucleus
located at the dorso-lateral side
of the brainstem,
spanning the junction
of the pons and medulla:
the first location of neuronal processing
from the inner ear.
It then travels to the
superior olivary complex
located in the pons ,
then to the inferior colliculi
of the midbrain,
Then reaching the thalamus,
then to the cortex.
The primary auditory cortex
is found in the
temporal lobe.

The main function of pons is to  act as a highway for relay
of many signals to and from the cerebrum and the cerebellum.
This is the center that acts
as the point of origin for various nerves in the body, including the important cranial nerves.
The Vestibulocochlear nerve  is a sensory nerve which has two parts - the cochlear portion,
which is involved with transmission
of sound from the ear to the brain.
The other part is the vestibular portion, which transmits information from the inner ear and helps in maintaining balance and coordination.
The primary function of pons is also to act as a motor relay center.
Many of the descending nerve fibers
of various tracts synapse
in the region of the pons.
