Basilar Membrane: A basement membrane in the cochlea that supports the hair cells of the Organ of corti, consisting keratin-like fibrils. It stretches from the Spiral lamina to the basilar crest. The movement of fluid in the cochlea, induced by sound, causes displacement of the basilar membrane and subsequent stimulation of the attached hair cells which transform the mechanical signal into neural activity.
