Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a category where you will find articles and research relevant to TBI and photobiomodulation (PBM). Recent research into the applications of PBM in helping those with TBI is showing promise. More specifically, the research is focusing on the use of transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) as a modality for traumatic brain injury.

This category includes articles based on the scientific research, as well as interviews with prominent researchers. Only recently, the scientists started to explore the effects of tPBM on those suffering from TBI. As you may see in the interviews, the outcomes are very favourable and warrant bigger studies.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Transcranial PBM for Traumatic Brain Injuries: New Studies

Improvement in Brain Injury Cases Employing Transcranial PBM Research suggests that transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM) could be helpful with long-term symptoms from repeated head injuries in professional contact sports. Two cases reported by Dr. Margaret Naeser, Boston University Medical School, conducted at the Boston VA Medical Center, support this. The subjects were retired professional football players suspected [...]
