Scientific Discoveries // Vocal Cords
Using cells from human donors, doctors have, for
the first time, built a set of vocal cords from
scratch. The cells were urged to form a tissue that
mimics vocal fold mucosa - vibrating flaps in the
larynx that create the sounds of the human voice.
This amazing breakthrough could someday restore
speech to patients who lost their vocal cords due
to illness or surgery.
