Significance of Sound in Stem Cell Research
“That’s the whole problem with science. You’ve got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe things of unimaginable wonder.” – Bill Watterson
The significance of sound in our lives plays a pivotal role. It triggers various emotions, memories, and physiological reactions that affect us mentally. As studied by various scientists the effect of sonic vibration for sound healing on our human body is immense. According to the Journal of International Society of Life Information Science, a study states that from the time we spend in our mother’s womb till our adulthood, we evolve in terms of our physical state. Through sonic vibration, humans experience a larger degree of relief from anxiety, enhanced blood circulation, more warmth in the body limb parts, greater relaxation, and possibly remembering the sounds they once listened to in their mother’s womb.
Regarding the new research that uses sonic waves to turn stem cells into bone cells, Dr. Amy Gelmi and Professor Leslie Yeo researchers from RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), Melbourne, Australia, explore a new approach by collaborating and combining Professor Yeo’s acoustic wave generation device and Dr. Gelmi’s interest in using external stimulation to control adult stem cell fate. Stem cells are cells with the potential to develop into different types of cells in the body and are used to replace specialized cells that are damaged or lost. Using stem cells for treatment has been one of the most heated research going on.
The treatment is progressive and better than other stem cells treatments because:
- Treatment is efficient
- Not time-consuming
- Doesn’t require bone-inducing drugs
- Can be easily applied to stem cells
- The device is very simple and easy to use.
- It can also be used to treat a larger number of cells
- Cheaper than other stem cells treatment
For the scientific community and as an avid science reader I do believe that the advancement in research of tissue engineering will greatly benefit the progress of the human race.
