How is hearing affected if a person 's cochlea is damaged?

The cochlea is the part of the inner ear that takes vibrations, transferred from sound waves hitting the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and converts them into signals for the auditory nerve. Different parts of the cochlea "encode" different frequencies (pitches) of sound. Therefore, if only part of the cochlea is damaged, a person may lose the ability to hear certain frequencies of sound. If it is damaged enough, the person may lose the ability to hear completely in one ear.
