Maybe Congreve Was Right.

"{Using sound) Wu and Demirci can then shepherd the heart cells into nearly any pattern they want. “You can make triangles, hexagonal shapes, circles, lines — you can even make a little human shape,” Demirci says."

...

"Unlike other tissue engineering tactics, acoustics position the heart cells in a tight configuration that closely resembles natural cardiac tissue, turning the resulting, beating blob into something valuable for medicine."

Above quotes come from a study from Stanford Medicine, "Sound research - 
Scientific innovations harness noise and acoustics for healing". Although the first part of the article has to do with mosquito sounds, most of the rest concerns medical application of sound, and who knows, maybe the sounds from music do the same things on a smaller scale.

@JohnG -

VERY interesting article! 

Thanx for sharing it! 😊

Down in the suggested additional reading, "Two Minds - The Cognitive Differences Between Men and Women", is another 'must read'!

More proof that music is good for you!  Many articles out there that talk about music & effect specifically on the brain--but this is suggesting sound affecting body cells directly.  Amazing.

So, all those ghost hunter shows should be getting a 18hz sound generator instead of just running around in the dark (has to be in the dark, because that's the only way ghosts show up, you know) and saying "did you hear that?"

Never knew about the mechanical resonance of the bridges, & it causing their collapse.  I feel smarter today - thanks @iFIDDLE
