Brain Stimulation

Brain stimulation involves the use of a stimulant to activate or inhibit one or more brain functions. The stimulant can be invasive or noninvasive. Thus, brain or neurostimulation using noninvasive stimulants falls into noninvasive brain stimulation category. Therefore, brain stimulation using invasive stimulants falls into invasive neurostimulation category.

Photobiomodulation is a non-invasive form of neurostimulation.  This form of photobiomodulation has a title of transcranial photobiomodulation or tPBM, and is the least invasive method of brain stimulation. It utilizes the near-infrared light (NIR) to penetrate through the cranial and to deliver the NIR energy to the neurones.

Brain light therapy or tPBM is undergoing extensive research and is a part of numerous clinical trials and research studies. This research has a variety of directions and focus. Some researchers study effects of tPBM on neurodegenerative disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Others, study applications of tPBM for athletic and physical performance. Thus, potential applications of tPBM are expending as scientists learn more and understand its effects better.

Vielight is playing an important role in making tPBM accessible to consumers. Vielight is a leader in design and manufacturing of user-friendly brain stimulation devices for home-use. Furthermore, all Vielight devices are classified as general wellness devices according to the FDA guidelines. Last, but not least, some of Vielight photobiomodulation devices are studied in a number of clinical trials and research studies for various indications.

Brain Stimulation with Light Energy

Brain stimulation is a term that may sound both familiar and distant to many. What about the terms brain stimulation using light energy or non-invasive brain stimulation? How about transcranial photobiomodulation? Often enough you hear words that seem simple to understand, but, somehow, they create a fuzzy aura of vagueness and mystery. This is particularly [...]

Can Light Therapy Help the Brain?

Brain photobiomodulation or transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) is the process of using near-infrared (NIR) light to improve brain functions. For example, cognitive activity and mental acuity are some of the functions that can be improved. The tPBM is a bioenergetics process which affects cellular functions. Thus, it stimulates the photosensitive cytochrome c oxidase enzyme within mitochondria [...]
