Transcranial Photobiomodulation

Transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) is unique form of phtobiomodulation. It is a noninvasive neuromodulation modality for neuroenhancement and brain wellness. Research data shows that tPBM has a potential to improve brain function. It’s application is under studies for a wide range of neurological and psychiatric disorders. The studies include tPBM applications for dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, traumatic brain injury (TBI), Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and more.

Furthermore, tPBM is also under investigation for performance improving qualities for athletes, the military and general public.

Near infrared light (NIR) therapy is the most common form of tPBM. This is so, because studies show that NIR light can penetrate deep enough into the brain to effect its modulation.

Thus, studies show that NIR therapy can improve cognitive acuity by modulating mitochondrial and cellular functions in the brain.

Approximately 3.8 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur annually in the United States, with growing concerns about their long-term effects on concentration and physical skills. Repetitive head impacts (RHIs), or repetitive head acceleration events (RHAEs), can lead to traumatic encephalopathy syndrome (TES) and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), even if they do not cause immediate [...]

Parkinson’s Disease and Brain Photobiomodulation | Mechanisms and Clinical Results with Vielight Neuro

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta, located in the midbrain section, which controls movement. This leads to motor and non-motor symptoms. Brain photobiomodulation (PBM) has emerged as a promising non-invasive approach for neuroprotection in PD. This article reviews the [...]
