The eighth of twelve cranial nerves, also known as the auditory nerve. The vestibulocochlear nerve emerges from the medulla oblongata and enters the internal acoustic meatus, next to the facial nerve.

The vestibular nerve goes to the semicircular canals via the vestibular ganglion. It receives positional information.

The cochlear nerve goes to the cochlea and transmits information on sound to the brain.
