we discovered that the pigeon's brain receives a signal from its middle ear that the brain then processes to determine both their direction and strength of the magnetic field.

I can easily interpret this and know the that clause is connected to 'a signal' other than 'ear' with my background knowledge. But what if I don't have any that knowledge, how could one immediately know where the that clause is connected to?
