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.

Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery and Photobiomodulation | Cellular Mechanisms, Clinical Evidence, and Future Potential

Introduction This blog article summarizes a published study by Vielight's founder, Dr. Lew Lim, on how PBM could potentially help with TBI. Link to the full study. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a big problem worldwide, but solutions are still unavailable. This is because TBI is complicated and involve different factors going wrong in [...]

Enhancing the Default Mode Network (DMN)

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 Default Mode Network (DMN) is a collection of brain regions that are active when an individual is [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
