The Neuro is the world’s first trans cranial intranasal near infrared light (NIR) photobiomodulation device.
The fastest of the five frequency bands is the gamma frequency. It is prominent when the brain is processing complex information that requires input from different parts of the brain. Intense thinking and problem solving are states that correlate with gamma wave activity. The brain oscillations in the gamma wave frequency band fall between approximately 35 Hz and 100 Hz.
Brain activity associated with a frequency of 40 Hz is of particular importance. The 40 Hz gamma wave activity is, presumably, present and needed for consolidation and complex processing of information from different parts of the brain. Whereas activity in this frequency range correlates with good memory performance, its deficiency correlates with learning issues and even disabilities.
The Neuro is the world’s first transcranial-intranasal near infrared light (NIR) photobiomodulation device. It is based on the science of photobiomodulation, the utilization of low level photonic energy to stimulate mitochondrial function in neurons. It directs pulsed(10 Hz) NIR light energy to the hubs of the default mode network [ video ] (DMN) of the brain using optimally engineered light emitting diodes (LED).
Research on DMN abnormalities and related neuro-pathologies are highly advanced, providing useful data for us to further develop the Neuro. This enables us to photobiomodulate the whole brain by targeting the DMN hubs. The efficiency of targeting the DMN enables us to utilize fewer diodes in 4 cluster heads in specific transcranial areas and 1 intranasal diode (5 areas in total) to deliver low level photons to the targeted network hubs.
Research studies in photobiomodulation show that damaged neurons regenerate when NIR light is present. The wavelength of 810 nm, pulsed at 10 Hz has been found to be the most effective wavelength for photonic penetration and neuronal healing. In human studies, pulsed NIR stimulation augments mental acuity, cognition, sustained attention, affective state and working memory.
Engineered for wearability, the Vielight Neuro comes equipped with a compact helmet(or headset), an advanced intranasal diode and a lightweight control unit(rechargeable through the mains).
The combination of easy-to-use design objectives along with powerful parameters makes the Vielight Neuro – a next generation near infrared device.
