Have You Ever Wondered Why Male And Female Voices Differ?

... to differences in the size and shape of the vocal cords and larynx between women and men and also due to women having greater natural "melody" in their voices. This causes a more complex range of sound frequencies than in a male voice. When a man hears a female voice the auditory section of his brain is ...

Radiation And Chemotherapy, A Better Option For Head And Neck Cancer

...ch sometimes necessitates the removal of the vocal cords in the larynx. These findings were made by doctors at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich, who monitored 97 patients with advanced laryngeal cancer in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

First, they exposed the spinal cords and brains of healthy rats to thicker (0.27 to 0.68 millimeter) microbeams at high doses of radiation and monitored the animals for signs of tissue damage. After seven months, animals exposed to beams as thick as 0.68 millimeter showed no or littl...
