More fascinating research using COLOR & LIGHT for CANCER DIAGNOSIS and Stem Cell Sorting, as well as REVERSING PARALYSIS using Infrared Laser Beams for SPINAL CORD REGENERATION.

 

From the Author:

"Most of what we know in Physics has been derived from experience with the inanimate world. One remaining challenge represents the transfer of these concepts to living objects such as cells, tissues, and entire organisms... We investigate the mechanical and optical properties of living cells and tissues using novel photonic tools to test their relevance and importance for biological function. Our ultimate goal is the transfer of our findings to medical application in the fields of improved diagnosis of diseases and novel approaches in regenerative medicine with an impact on clinical practice."
 

"The long standing paradigm that neurons in the CNS cannot regenerate is gone (after 3500 years). While most research to date is biochemical, there are also physical aspects that need to be considered. We are developing tools to investigate axonal growth and to stimulate and direct it in certain directions. Specifically, we are using IR laser beams to guide axonal growth into mechanical barriers, such as glial scars present after neurological trauma to see whether those pose mechanical barriers to nerve regeneration. We are also investigating the importance of mechanical cues for normal differentiation and axonal pathfinding during development."

Shining light in the ears may alleviate seasonal depression symptoms

Shining light in the ears may alleviate seasonal depression symptoms | Studies to the Viabilities  Light Frequency Therapuetic Treatments | Scoop.it

Millions of people experience depression and lower levels of energy in the winter due to seasonal-affective disorder (SAD), or the “winter blues.” Since the disorder is thought to arise due to a shortage of natural light, one common form of treatment is light therapy, in which the person sits in front of a bright, full-spectrum light at certain times of day. But the effectiveness of light therapy has been unclear, and now researchers from Oulu, Finland, think they know why: light-sensitive regions of the brain may actually play a larger role in SAD symptoms than those in the eyes. For this reason, they’ve designed earphones that shine light through the ear canal to light-sensitive proteins on the brain’s surface, with encouraging results. In a clinical trial, patients received 8-12 minutes of 6.0-8.5 lumen bright light daily into both ear canals for four weeks. The results showed that 92% of the patients with severe SAD symptoms achieved full remission when measured by a self-rated questionnaire designed for psychological studies, and 77% as measured by a psychiatrist-rated questionnaire.
