Blog

The Vielight blog has articles about the brain and systemic photobiomodulation (PBM). From biohacking to brain health and mitochondrial efficiency, the blog articles discuss many subjects related to PBM.

The field of photbiomodulation, or light therapy, exists for over 55 years. In the last decade numerous advances in PBM research brought more attention to this exciting field. Thus, the Vielight blog has numerous articles, including those covering the latest research and science of PBM.

Moreover, the blog has photobiomodulation articles covering general science and principles of PBM, as well as research into more specific areas of PBM. For example, some articles cover transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM), intranasal photobiomodulation (iPBM), mental acuity and other relevant subjects.

Whether you are new to PBM and never really herd of it before, or an avid supporter and practitioner of PBM, you will find something useful. There is plenty to read in this blog. There is something of interest here to everyone.

Importantly, the Vielight blog is always growing. This means that you may want to come back every ones in a while and browse through articles for the newest and the freshest.

Enhancing the Default Mode Network

The Vielight Neuros are designed to deliver near-infrared (NIR) light to the default mode network (DMN) of the brain. This article will address the importance of the DMN and the value of targeting this network using photobiomodulation (PBM). What is the Default Mode Network? Figure 1 - Regions of the Default Mode Network [...]

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 [...]

Brain Stimulation: Neurofeedback and Photobiomodulation

“tPBM has become a central element in my protocol design process. I find it to be an excellent complement to the functional support provided by neurofeedback.” “Helping brains develop new connections which support better function is an important part of neurofeedback training. Based on emerging research, tPBM can potentially support the growth of those new [...]
