Help, need info on COCHLEA

I think I read somewhere that the cillia (?) of the cochlea can somehow be
attuned dynamically in their sensitivity to different types (pitches?) of
sounds. I think this was rather a recent finding (although I'm not sure)
but I
can't for the life of me track down where I read it. Can anyone please
confirm
or disconfirm this information, and supply a reference? Failing that,
could
anyone suggest where I might find a good, up-to-date review of cochlear
physiology.

Thanks,
Nigel J.T. Thomas
