Which statement accurately describes how sensory information is transmitted to and interpreted by the brain?

All sensory signals are directed to the front of the brain in the form of action potentials.

The specificity of receptor cells in the ear causes them to generate the maximum number of action potentials at specific sound frequencies.

Sensory information is sent to specific regions of the brain based on signal frequencies: High-frequency signals are received at the side of the brain, whereas low-frequency signals are received at the back of the brain.

Each receptor cell in the human ear is capable of responding to broad frequencies of sound.
