The Function of the Organ of Corti

In this video, I talk about the organ of corti, which is found on top of the basiliar membrane inside the cochlea. When the basilar membrane vibrates up and down, that causes the organ of Corti to move up and down, and the tectorial membrane in a windshield wiper-like fashion. This causes the cilia on the hair cells to bend, sending a signal to the brain. Enjoy :)
