Inner/Internal Hair Cells
receptor cells that respond to movement of the basilar membrane caused by the hydraulic wave generated in the scala media - are aligned in a single row running the length of the cochlea
Outer/External Hair Cells
receptor cells that respond to movement of the basilar membrane cause by the hydraulic wave generated in the scala media - aligned in three rows running the length of the cochlea
receptor cells sit on top the most flexible part of this structure that arises from the spiral lamina
a bony shelf that supports the basilar membrane on the modilous, centeral (left) side of the cochlea
the oppisite end support of the basilar membrane - is a thick lining of the bony lab. that anchors the basilar membrane to the lateral wall of cochlea
amplitude, hydraulic wave, cochlea
basilar membrane moves with the most _ in response to _ generated _
located laterally (above) the spiral ligament - responsible for maintaining the proper chemical concentrations for endolymph, the fluid inside the cochlear duct
a thin delicate membrane that holds the inner and outer hair cells gently yet firmly in place - the cells poke through this membrane at the base of the hair cell
where the tops of the hair cells extend towards and embed in - extends over the superior surface of the organ of corti
the inner hair cells during embryotic development - a single large hair that disappears during the latter part of fetal development
