The photobiomodulation category represents the top level domain expertise of the VieLight team. Specifically, it will cover information about the effects of infrared light and near infrared light (NIR) therapy on human body. Even more specifically, the focus will be on brain and blood biophotomodulation, therapies. How does infrared and near infrared light affect our vital systems, organs and well being? Light therapy is not a new discipline, and neither is photobiomodulation or PBM. The content in this category will provide further insights into the science and practice of infrared and near infrared light therapy. It will cover the latest therapeutic effects of PBM.
Brain photobiomodulation or transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) is the process of using near-infrared (NIR) light to improve brain functions. For example, cognitive activity and mental acuity are some of the functions that can be improved. The tPBM is a bioenergetics process which affects cellular functions. Thus, it stimulates the photosensitive cytochrome c oxidase enzyme within mitochondria [...]
