Researchers Demonstrate that Human Cells “Vibrate”

A research team from the CSIC (Spanish National Research Council) has achieved a significant breakthrough in understanding the mechanical properties of human cells: it has successfully demonstrated that living cells, specifically human breast epithelial cells, exhibit mechanical resonances, a phenomenon previously considered unlikely due to the extraordinary viscosity and complexity of cells in physiological environments.
