1

What is the most exciting beneficial effects of photobiomodulation is what?

(Thunshelle + Hamelin 2016)

The possibility of neurogenesis (the ability of the brain to repair itself) and synaptogenesis (encourages cells to form new synaptic connections)

2

What have studies with rodents found using low level laser therapy?

(Thunshelle + Hamelin 2016)

1. Increasing memory

2. Increasing learning

3. Overall neurological performance

3

What processes have be proposed to lead to the beneficial effects of photobiomodulation?

(Thunshelle + Hamelin 2016)

1. Stimulation of neurogenisis
2. A decrease in inflammation
3. Neuroprotection

And regulating several biological processes

4

What is one way that low Lovell lasted therapy helps the damaged brain?

(Thunshelle + Hamelin 2016)

Increasing blood flow- improved oxygenation - this is found in damaged areas of the brain (rodent studies)
