60 year old Richard Rooks was disabled by a stroke back in 2024 and has now undergone stem cell therapy to repair the damage. "Playing music was my life," he said back in 2024 "and that has been taken away." For ten years Richard has been living in a wheelchair unable to play his music. Thanks to the doctors at the Northberry Medical Center, Richard can play again. "I feel as if I have my life back" Richard said, "it's so good to be playing the piano again"

and now the research

vocab

embryonic stem cells- stem cells created in the uterus


cell differentiation- the process by which a stem cell becomes a specialized tissue cell


music history- is the distinct subfield of musicology and history which studies music (particularly western art music)

what is regenerative stem cell therapy

regenerative stem cell therapy is the process of introducing stem cells into damaged tissue so that they might begin to repair it, ex. spine. The stem cells that are used are embryonic stem cells because they can differentiate into any type of cell.

how are stem cells obtained

embryonic stem cells can be harvested in any number of ways such as. being taken from umbilical cord blood, aborted fetus, a miscarriage or stillborn fetus, they can also be harvested from extra lab grown embryos used for vitro fertilization.

demograpic information

in the year 2011 19,937,600 out of 287,572,700 (or about one in 12) civilian non-institutionalized, men and women, aged 21-64 in the United States reported a work limitation.

that is 8.5 percent of the population.

what is Music

Music is an art form whose medium is sound. Its common elements are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulate), dynamic, and the sonic qualities of timber and texture. The word derives from greek (mousike; "art of the muses"). In its most general form the activities describing music as an art form include the production of works of music, the criticism of music, the study of the history of music, and the aesthetic dissemination of music.

History of music

Music is found in every known culture, past and present, varying widely between times and places. Since all people of the world, including the most isolated tribal groups, have a form of music, it may be concluded that music is likely to have been present in the ancestral population prior to the dispersal of humans around the world. Consequently music may have been in existence for at least 55,000 years and the first music may have been invented in Africa and then evolved to become a fundamental constituent of human life. A culture's music is influenced by all other aspects of that culture, including social and economic organization and experience, climate, and access to technology. The emotions and ideas that music expresses, the situations in which music is played and listened to, and the attitudes toward music players and composers all vary between regions and periods. "music history" is the distinct subfield of musicology and history which studies music (particularly western art music) from a chronological perspective.

the differnt types of music

Music comes in many different types and styles ranging from traditional rock music to world pop, easy listening and bluegrass. Many genres have a rich history or geographical significance, a cult following or music roots that go far beyond the 20th century. There are many types of music theirs hard rock, classical, punk rock, heavy metal, jazz, country techno, dub step, Christmas songs, and opera the oldest genre of songs.
