Medical Definition of Cochlear hair cell

1. The sound sensing cell of the inner ear. The cells have modified ciliary structures (hairs), that enable them to produce an electrical (neural) response to mechanical motion caused by the effect of sound waves on the cochlea. Frequency is detected by the position of the cell in the cochlea and amplitude by the magnitude of the disturbance.
