A study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine demonstrated beneficial quantities of light can reach brain tissue using rather atypical patients--human cadavers--providing a therapeutic dose of energy-stimulating photons to diseased brain tissue. In light of new evidence, will doctors change how they treat neurological diseases?
Mounting evidence suggests the prevelance of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is considerably more widespread than previously believed. Now, scientists are searching for treatments that reverse the damaging effects of traumatic brain injuries before it's too late. Could NIR laser phototherapy be the solution?
