Are Brain Waves the Secret to Treating Alzheimer’s?

Publication: TED Author: Li-Huei Tsai What if we could use brain waves to treat Alzheimer’s? Professor and neuroscientist Li-Huei Tsai details a promising new approach to artificially stimulate gamma brain waves using light and sound therapy, to increase connectivity and synchrony and delay the onset of this deadly disease. This non-invasive therapy has already been …

Deep Sleep May Help Clear the Brain of Alzheimer’s-Related Toxins

Publication: Medical News TodayAuthor: Jeanna D. Smiley Alzheimer’s disease destroys neurons and their connections in parts of the brain involved in memory. It’s caused in part by amyloid plaques that compound in the brain. Multiple studies are ongoing revealing the deep connections between cleaning out amyloid plaques and sleep. Current research agrees with previous studies …

A Possible Alzheimer’s Treatment with Clicks and Flashes? It Worked on Mice

Publication: NYTimes Author: Pam Belluck For Alzheimer’s patients, a new study led by a prominent M.I.T. neuroscientist offers tantalizing promise. It found that when mice engineered to exhibit Alzheimer’s-like qualities were exposed to 40Hz lights and clicking sounds, important brain functions improved and toxic levels of Alzheimer’s-related proteins diminished. What’s more, the rapid-fire soundtrack appeared …

How Flashing Lights and Pink Noise Might Banish Alzheimer’s, Improve Memory and More

Publication: NatureAuthor: Helen Thomson Neuroscientists are getting excited about non-invasive procedures to tune the brain’s natural oscillations. Although scientists have observed the effects of differing brainwaves for the past 100 years, only now are they understanding the positive effects that certain frequencies have on restoring gamma wave activity in the brain. The work offers the …

Can Flickering Light and Sound Treat Alzheimer’s

Publication: Medical News Today Author: James Kingsland MIT research team revealed that light therapy boosts a form of brain wave called gamma oscillation, which research suggests is impaired in people with Alzheimer’s disease. The most recent investigation has shown that boosting gamma oscillations can improve the connection between nerve cells, reduce inflammation, and preserve against …
