40Hz Gamma Modulation in Alzheimer’s Research


The Ongoing Search for Effective and Accessible Treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common type of dementia in elderly individuals worldwide (Wilson et al., 2012). The disease is characterized by neurodegeneration, tissue changes in the brain, (including amyloid-containing plaques and tangles of hyperphosphorylated tau protein), severe cognitive decline and in [...]

Parkinson’s Disease and Brain Photobiomodulation


Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy involves using non-thermal light, specifically narrow-wavelength bands of red and near-infrared light from LED or laser sources, to affect cellular responses. This therapy primarily targets cytochrome-C-oxidase, which releases reactive oxygen species (ROS) and regulates cellular signaling pathways. PBM therapy has a strong safety record and is free of serious side-effects, making [...]

Autism and Brain Photobiomodulation


At the moment, there are no pharmacological treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) core features. There is a growing interest in non-pharmacological interventions for ASD, such as neuromodulation with brain photobiomodulation 🧠 Dr Pallanti Stefano, a Stanford University Professor and Director of Istituto di Neuroscienze, Florence, Italy, led an independent retrospective study with the Vielight [...]

Enhancing the Default Mode Network


Many neuroscience publications indicate that the brain is modular and composed of different networks The key to successful brain stimulation (and brain photobiomodulation) is to focus on networks that hold the most importance to your objective. The Vielight Neuros are designed to deliver near-infrared (NIR) light to the default mode network (DMN) of the [...]

What are the differences between the Vielight Neuro Alpha and Neuro Gamma devices?


The question, “When should I use an alpha frequency and when should I use a gamma frequency?” is not new. In the context of brain photobiomodulation and Vielight products, this question refers to the Vielight Neuro Alpha and Neuro Gamma devices. More specifically, answering this question requires an understanding of the differences between these [...]

Brain Photobiomodulation Pathways, Their Benefits and Opportunities 


Numerous studies conducted over the last two decades have shown the beneficial effects of photobiomodulation (PBM) on the body. Furthermore, a lot of research has been done over the last decade to better understand PBM’s effects on the brain. Today, there is a sufficient body of research-based evidence to conclude that PBM has beneficial [...]

Can Light Penetrate the Skull?


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