In this episode of Evolving Past Alzheimer’s, Dr. Nate Bergman speaks with Dr. Marvin Berman about photobiomodulation, which is essentially shining lights on the head in order to positively influence brain function. They also review the positive results of a recent clinical trial done by Dr. Berman’s group at the Quiet Mind Foundation and his colleagues at the Texas A&M Deptartment of Neurosurgery using 1068nm transcranial and intraocular photobiomodulation to treat early to mid-stage dementia.
