BRAIN PHOTOBIOMODULATION MECHANISMS

Based on published works, brain photobiomodulation has been found to support factors that relate to improved brain health. Additionally, Gamma and Alpha neural oscillation entrainment could help improve focus, reaction time and decision-making.

The theoretical benefits of brain photobiomodulation include increased synaptogenesis(1), increased angiogenesis(2),  anti-inflammation(3), anti-apoptosis, increased neuron progenitor cells(4), increased superoxide dismutase (SOD), increased neurotrophins (growth factors) and reduced neuron excitotoxicity(5).

ALPHA AND GAMMA BRAIN WAVES

The basis of all our thoughts, behaviour and emotions is the interaction between neuronal networks communicating with each other. This interaction leads to the formation of neural electrical signals known as brainwaves.

Brain stimulation via photobiomodulation stimulates neuronal mitochondria, which increases celullar energy levels. This results in improved efficiency in neural signalling and communication.

Vielight technology is the first in the world to demonstrate the ability to modulate and alter brainwaves using NIR electromagnetic (light) energy, measured through EEG.

  • Alpha brainwaves are prominent when the mind is calm and in some meditative states. Alpha is the resting state for the brain.

    Alpha waves help with developing overall mental coordination, calmness and inner peace.

    Initial EEG testing indicates that the Vielight Neuro Alpha’s 10 Hz pulse can elevate neural Alpha waves.

  • Gamma brainwaves are prominent when the mind is attentive and in the process of learning. Gamma is the active state of the brain.

    When Gamma oscillations are elevated, this leads to increased mental acuity.

    Initial EEG testing indicates that the Vielight Neuro Gamma’s 40 Hz pulse can elevate neural Gamma waves.

Our science division is committed to furthering research in the field of neuromodulation using NIR light for the benefit of everyone.

Figure : Influence of tPBM on resting-state electroencephalography. Box plot illustrates the median and range of power spectrum across all electrodes for each oscillatory frequency bands. (a) Effect of active tPBM on power spectrum pre (green line) and post (red line). (b) Effect of sham tPBM on power spectrum pre (green line) and post (red line). (c) Difference between Active and Sham tPBM: Change of power spectrum Post-Pre for active (red line) and sham (green line) tPBM. Active versus sham stimulation revealed significant lower alteration in delta and theta power and higher change in alpha, beta and gamma frequency bands.
