Can Light Therapy Help the Brain?

Brain photobiomodulation (PBM) is the use of near-infrared (NIR) energy to improve cognitive functions and mental acuity. This bioenergetics process stimulates the photosensitive cytochrome c oxidase enzyme within mitochondria to produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate). For example, this is similar to the conversion of nutrients from food into metabolic energy but with photons as the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
