Here’s a really interesting response to the blog post called Connecting with others.
I have permission to use the correspondent’s own words:Continue reading “Visual processing”
I’ve been observing people with Parkinson’s disease using trans-cranial red and near infrared light devices for nearly four years now. I’ve learned lots of things, especially how little I knew about the realities of living with this rotten, slippery disease.
Here’s a curious thing I’ve noticed.

Photobiomodulation can help people with Parkinson’s reconnect with others
I was asked today if ongoing research into the effects of red and near infrared light on Parkinson’s disease is validating the early observations.
The short answer is yes.
The long answer is most definitely yes!
Here are links to recent blog posts with recent research information from the peer-reviewed medical literature.

This article about Dr Ann Liebert’s work was published in The Australian a few days ago.
One of the many things it highlights is the effect of red lights on a key non-motor symptom of Parkinson’s – the sense of smell.
Hot off the press is a peer-reviewed journal article describing the observations of people with Parkinson’s disease using transcranial red and near infrared light hats on a daily basis.
The title of the article is a hoot: The “Buckets”: Early Observations on the Use of Red and Infrared Light Helmets in Parkinson’s Disease Patients.
The authors are: Catherine L. Hamilton, Hala El Khoury, David Hamilton, Frank Nicklason, and John Mitrofanis.
The article is published in: Photobiomodulation, Photomedicine, and Laser Surgery.http://doi.org/10.1089/photob.2019.4663
