Infrared light improves memory in pilot clinical trial on healthy individuals
A pilot clinical trial (NCT04568057) conducted on the efficacy of photobiomodulation therapy (PBM-T) claims it may provide a promising new approach to improve memory function in healthy, middle-aged people with normal intellectual function for their age.
The study, conducted by a team led by Paul Chazot, PhD, associate professor, Durham University, and Gordon Dougal, MB ChB, at Maculume Ltd., subjected 27 participants to near-infrared light (NIR) at 1068 nm wavelength twice daily using an air-cooled LED helmet that participants can wear on their own. The results showed significant improvements in 16 behavioral assessment scores that included measures for movement, memory performance, and reaction times.
