Scientific research is a very large category covering the science of photobiomodulation (PBM) or light therapy. With respect to PBM, scientific research is a very specific category. It offers up to date studies of light therapy, or PBM. More specifically, this category includes research on the effects of PBM in its various forms. Thus, such forms of light therapy include transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM), intranasal photobiomodulation (iPBM), combination of both tPBM and iPBM, and other forms of applications of PBM.

Furthermore, the focus of the scientific research category is mostly on peer-reviewed articles in reputable scientific publications. Such publications provide the latest and the most substantiated information about PBM. They offer a good insight in the current state of research into PBM, including applications, efficacy and delivery.

The field of PBM has been attracting more and more bright minds of science, garnering interest for a number of applications. Consequently, scientific research of this exciting field is growing. A significant body of works on PBM has been produced and published annually. Thus, the science of photobiomodulation is gaining support. The studies of light therapy are dating well over half a century back.

All the vielight.com articles which have strong scientific basis behind them will be a part of this important category. As the body of scientific research in PBM is growing, so will the body of articles in this category.

Validating Intranasal Pulsed Photobiomodulation

Interim Report Reveals Intranasal Photobiomodulation’s Significant Effect on the Brain Vielight has been closely identified by its intranasal technology. This is where a uniquely designed nasal applicator delivers light of the specific wavelengths in the nasal cavity. The patent for this technology was granted to Dr. Lew Lim, the Founder and CEO of the company. [...]

Can Light Penetrate the Skull?

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

Photobiomodulation Creates Multi-factorial Pathways

"One Intervention, Multi-factorial Pathways", A Theory of Why PBM Could Work for Alzheimer's In the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, to date, no medication has succeeded in modifying Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).  Some AD medications approved by the FDA before 2003 were somewhat helpful for some patients for about 6 months. Recently, we informed our readers of [...]

Default Mode Network Photobiomodulation

To discuss photobiomodulation and the brain’s default mode network we reached out to Prof. Margaret Naeser, at the VA Boston Healthcare System. She is a Research Professor of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine. She kindly provided us with some in-depth, detailed information. We asked her to answer a few questions related to her research [...]

Light therapy treatment – research journey

Light therapy treatments, or photobiomodulation (PBM), has been a subject of heated debates and numerous attacks. Many skeptics and people distant from the science are questioning the benefits of photobiomodulation. Some of them out right rejecting the existence of the therapeutic benefits. Thus, using red and near infrared light (NIR) for therapeutic effects has become [...]

A Scientific Report Sheds Light on Unanswered Questions

A Scientific Report Sheds Light on Unanswered Questions Newcomers to the world of brain photobiomodulation, as well as skeptics, often ask these three questions: “1. Can light penetrate into the brain? 2. Does the brain respond to photobiomodulation (PBM)? and 3. Does the brain respond positively?” Nature Scientific Reports published a paper in April 2019, [...]

Jay Sanguinetti’s Research in tPBM, Non-invasive Treatment Modalities and Meditation

Neuroimaging modalities like fMRI have begun to uncover the brain areas that are dysfunctional in disorders like depression. Non-invasive neuromodulation technologies like transcranial photobiomodulation allow us to target those brain areas for new treatments. tPBM is such an easy and cost-effective form of neuromodulation that the technology could be scaled rather quickly. In late March [...]
