Hi there. I am going to try and answer this the best that I can. Sensorineural Hearing Loss In sensorineural hearing loss, the damage lies in the inner ear, the acoustic nerve, or both. Most physicians call this condition "nerve deafness." The cochlea has approximately 30,000 hearing nerve endings (hair cells). The hair cells in the large end of the cochlea respond to very high-pitched sounds, and those in the small end (and throughout much of the rest of the cochlea) respond to low-pitched sounds. These hair cells, and the nerve that connects them to the brain, are susceptible to damage from a variety of causes. •The term "sensory" hearing loss is applied when the damage is in the inner ear. Common synonyms are "cochlear" or "inner-ear" hearing loss. •"Neural" hearing loss is the correct term to use when the damage is in the acoustic nerve, anywhere between its fibers at the base of the hair cells

There is still no update on the experiments on hair cell regeneration. Hearing aids can be one of the methods for treating sensorineural hearing loss and can significantly improve hearing abilities.
