As a powerful and well-researched brain photobiomodulation (PBM) device with intranasal technology, the Vielight Neuro Gamma is a next-generation brain stimulation device that’s safe, effective and easy to use. Our patented transcranial-intranasal technology offers a unique and powerful advantage for comprehensive brain stimulation of the Default Mode Network.
The Neuro Gamma transmits pulsed near-infrared (NIR) energy through the cranium, activating a brain stimulation process known as photobiomodulation. Through efficient engineering, we are able to extract one of the highest amounts of power (~100 mW/cm2) from a near-infrared LED energy source without generating heat.
The Neuro Gamma emits pulsed NIR energy at the 40 Hz frequency. This frequency correlates with neural gamma brain oscillations. Gamma brain waves have a correlation with increased focus, information processing, memory improvement and brain energy levels.
Additionally, our Neuro Gamma technology is featured prominently in independent brain photobiomodulation research globally.
- Vielight technology quality is guaranteed by medical grade certification.
- Vielight technology is supported by a two-year manufacturer’s warranty from the time of delivery.
Why the nose?
Being just 3 inches from the brain, the intranasal channel is the most efficient channel for photobiomodulation of the ventral (underside) brain area. These ventral structures within the brain’s core have important functions.
How is the Neuro Gamma different from the Neuro Alpha?
- The Alpha induces a more relaxed mental state while the Gamma induces a more focused mental state.
- Near-infrared light is nearly invisible to the naked eye, making the beam appear dimmer than its power density.
- Each device comes with:
1) 1 Neuro headset
2) 1 Neuro intranasal applicator
3) 1 Charger
4) 1 Device pouch
5) 1 Silicon sleeve
6) 1 Carry case
Please note that this device is not the same as the Neuro RX Gamma that is currently being used in our clinical trials. The RX Gamma is intended to be fully compliant with regulatory requirements for a medical device and will not be available without regulatory clearance. The “Neuro RX Gamma” is therefore a different product from the “Neuro Gamma”

Vielight Neuro FAQ
What wavelength does the Vielight Neuro emit?
The Vielight Neuro emits pulsed 810nm NIR energy to enable brain stimulation through the photobiomodulation process.
Why the 810nm wavelength?
The 810nm wavelength has the deepest penetration through tissue and bone, enabling photonic transmission to neuronal mitochondria.
What is the difference between the Duo, Gamma and Alpha models?
The Gamma model pulses NIR light energy at 40 Hz, which has a neuromodulating effect on Gamma neural oscillations. Theoretical brain stimulation effects are an increase of memory activity, perception, cognition.
The Alpha model pulses NIR light energy at 10 Hz. This frequency is similar to neural alpha waves. Theoretical brain stimulation effects on alpha waves have a correlation with the brain’s resting state, offering support for mental coordination, mindfulness and learning.
The Duo makes both of these pulse rates available to you – having both pulse rates brings the most benefits.
How much power do your brain photobiomodulation devices generate?
Our brain photobiomodulation devices generate sufficient power to penetrate the skull and produce statistically significant results in independent research studies. For a full list of our published results, please refer to this link: Link
What is the recommended usage?
The general recommended usage is to use once every other day before experimenting with more frequent usage, not exceeding once per day. For more serious cognitive impairment, the recommendation is once per day, six days a week. Please note these recommendations are theoretical, anecdotal by nature and only based on published data or ongoing clinical trials with yet unpublished results.
Engineering behind the Vielight Neuro.
The Vielight Neuro enables direct contact with the scalp’s surface to maximize energy transmission and penetration while microchip-boosted cold LED diodes generate substantial power without releasing heat. Additionally, our patented intranasal technology enables photobiomodulation of the ventral brain areas.
