Hair Cells: Hair cells are specialized types of sensory receptors that are located in the inner ear. The hair cells play an important role in maintaining equilibrium and in hearing. Hair cells are not found in hair but are named after the hair-like appearance of their microvilli, protrusions from the cells and move and bend similar to hair. The movement and bending of hair cells generate impulses about movement and positioning of the head and body and hearing that are picked up by the 8th cranial nerve and carried to the brain.
Conditions that can afflict the hair cells include deterioration of the hair cells, aging, chronic exposure to loud noise, nerve deafness and trauma.
