Cochlea Hair Cell is a neuron located in the cochlea of the inner ear of mammals and some nonmammals such as birds

There are two types of cochlea hair cells, outside hair cells and inside hair cells. They both assist in the process of relaying sound to the brain. These cells are found in a small area in the cochlea called the organ of Corti. Anywhere from 17,500-23,500 hair cells can be found in the human ear. Each cell is covered by special structures called stereocilia, a primary structure used in sound transduction. With stimulation, the stereocilia bend which cause a signal that goes to the auditory nerve and eventually to the auditory cortex allowing sound to be processed by the brain.
