Transcranial Photobiomodulation

Transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) is unique form of phtobiomodulation. It is a noninvasive neuromodulation modality for neuroenhancement and brain wellness. Research data shows that tPBM has a potential to improve brain function. It’s application is under studies for a wide range of neurological and psychiatric disorders. The studies include tPBM applications for dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, traumatic brain injury (TBI), Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and more.

Furthermore, tPBM is also under investigation for performance improving qualities for athletes, the military and general public.

Near infrared light (NIR) therapy is the most common form of tPBM. This is so, because studies show that NIR light can penetrate deep enough into the brain to effect its modulation.

Thus, studies show that NIR therapy can improve cognitive acuity by modulating mitochondrial and cellular functions in the brain.

Brain Stimulation Using Light

Brain stimulation is a term that may sound both familiar and distant to many. What about the terms brain stimulation using light or non-invasive brain stimulation? How about transcranial photobiomodulation? Often enough you can hear words that seem simple to understand, but, somehow, they create a fuzzy aura of vagueness and mystery. This is particularly [...]

Validating Intranasal Pulsed Photobiomodulation

Interim Report Reveals Intranasal Photobiomodulation’s Significant Effect on the Brain Vielight has been closely identified by its intranasal technology. This is where a uniquely designed nasal applicator delivers light of the specific wavelengths in the nasal cavity. The patent for this technology was granted to Dr. Lew Lim, the Founder and CEO of the company. [...]

Can Light Therapy Help the Brain?

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 [...]

Can Light Penetrate the Skull?

“Can light penetrate the skull and reach the brain?”, is a common question that skeptics and scientists share. Thankfully, current research indicates that light energy can reach the brain, and this depends on several variables - such as wavelength and power density. As such, this article will attempt to clarify the mechanisms that play a [...]

Photobiomodulation Creates Multi-factorial Pathways

"One Intervention, Multi-factorial Pathways", A Theory of Why PBM Could Work for Alzheimer's In the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, to date, no medication has succeeded in modifying Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).  Some AD medications approved by the FDA before 2003 were somewhat helpful for some patients for about 6 months. Recently, we informed our readers of [...]

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. She is Research Professor of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine. She kindly provided us with some in-depth, detailed information. We asked her to answer a few questions related to her research in [...]
