Hair cell


Hair cells, with the hallmark of the stereocilia bundle at their apical surface, are the sensory receptors of the auditory and vestibular systems in the ears of vertebrates. Hair cells transduce mechanical stimuli into electrical activity. In addition to the stereocilia bundle, hair cells also contain structural and functional specializations in the basolateral and synaptic membranes, which are responsible for electrical activities and synaptic transmission. The supporting cells in the sensory epithelium contribute to the mechanics and the homeostasis of the ionic and chemical environment in the inner ear, especially in the mammalian hearing organ.

A standard EDITORIAL TRACKING SYSTEM is utilized for manuscript submission, review, editorial processing and tracking which can be securely accessed by the authors, reviewers and editors for monitoring and tracking the article processing. Manuscripts can be uploaded online at Editorial Tracking System ( or forwarded to the Editorial Office at
