Hair cell regeneration has been gradually shown to occur in the inner ears of mammals as well as birds; this has been particularly demonstrated in the vestibular system rather than the organ of Corti. Several new strategies including mitosis, self repair, transdifferentiation, and cell transplantation are being pursued to brimg about hair cell regeneration.
