What is the Cochlea?

The snail-shell-shaped organ in the inner ear that contains the structures by which sound vibrations are analysed and transduced to the form of frequency-modulated nerve impulses. These are carried by the acoustic nerves to the brain to prompt the sensation of meaningful sound.
