New research demonstrates that near-infrared light in the 1600-1870 nm range is optimal for imaging of brain tissue.
Light enhances brain activity during a cognitive task, even in some people who are totally blind, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Montreal (Quebec, Canada) and Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA).
A new method that uses light to control muscles holds potential to restore function to muscle tissue paralyzed by conditions such as spinal cord injury and motor neuron diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
In work that could improve treatments for hearing and vision loss-and lead to devices to help maintain balance, treat movement disorders like Parkinson's, and enable development of optical pacemakers-scientists at the University of Utah report using diode-generated infrared light to make rat heart
