Default Mode Network Photobiomodulation

To discuss photobiomodulation and the brain's default mode network we reached out to Prof. Margaret Naeser at the VA Boston Healthcare System. Prof. Naeser is Research Professor of Neurology at the Boston University School of Medicine. She kindly provided us with an in-depth, detailed information. We asked her to answer a few more questions related [...]

Photobiomodulation Research Continues

Vielight to Present at a Major Alzheimer’s Conference The Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) is the largest annual conference for Alzheimer’s Disease. This year, it takes place in Los Angeles, California, from July 12 to 18, 2019. Vielight will have a presence in this year’s conference. This year is particularly important in view of the [...]

Light therapy treatment – research journey

Light therapy treatments, or photobiomodulation (PBM), has been a subject of heated debates and numerous attacks. Many skeptics and people distant from the science are questioning the benefits of photobiomodulation. Some of them out right rejecting the existence of the therapeutic benefits. Thus, using red and near infrared light (NIR) for therapeutic effects has become [...]

Photobiomodulation Therapy Discussion: Opinions from Leading Photobiomodulation Researchers

Introduction In our attempt to help many interested in the subject of photobiomodulation therapy and the science behind it, we asked two well-respected scientists and researchers to join us. They kindly agreed to participate in a photobiomodulation therapy discussion and even dived into its applications, including transcranial photbiomodulation. They offered their unique takes on this [...]

A Scientific Report Sheds Light on Unanswered Questions

A Scientific Report Sheds Light on Unanswered Questions Newcomers to the world of brain photobiomodulation, as well as skeptics, often ask these three questions: “1. Can light penetrate into the brain? 2. Does the brain respond to photobiomodulation (PBM)? and 3. Does the brain respond positively?” Nature Scientific Reports published a paper in April 2019, [...]

Breakthrough Revelation in Brain Patterns with Vielight Neuro Gamma

Vielight Study Succeeds: the Neuro Gamma Modulates Brain Patterns This is a study that should be of great significance to the world of brain stimulation and photobiomodulation (PBM) research. We showed for the first time that inducing pulsed near infrared (NIR) light to the brain has real impact in modulating brain oscillations. Lew Lim, Ph.D., [...]

Jay Sanguinetti’s Research in tPBM, Non-invasive Treatment Modalities and Meditation

Neuroimaging modalities like fMRI have begun to uncover the brain areas that are dysfunctional in disorders like depression. Non-invasive neuromodulation technologies like transcranial photobiomodulation allow us to target those brain areas for new treatments. tPBM is such an easy and cost-effective form of neuromodulation that the technology could be scaled rather quickly. In late March [...]

Continuing PBM Research Efforts

Continuing Efforts and Findings in PBM Research On March 21, 2019, pharmaceutical giants Biogen and Eisai announced they were discontinuing their much-anticipated clinical trial. It was the final phase of one of the most promising Alzheimer’s Disease drugs under trials, aducanumab. This announcement was heart-breaking for those who had been holding out for it. There [...]

Transcranial PBM for Traumatic Brain Injuries: New Studies

Improvement in Brain Injury Cases Employing Transcranial PBM Research suggests that transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM) could be helpful with long-term symptoms from repeated head injuries in professional contact sports. Two cases reported by Dr. Margaret Naeser, Boston University Medical School, conducted at the Boston VA Medical Center, support this. The subjects were retired professional football players suspected [...]
