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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
