Flickering Lights Might Help in Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease

A new research finds that exposure to flickering lights with certain frequency can set the faulty signalling of the brain and energise its immune cells to fight the disease.flickering lights

For their research, the scientist set mice attacked by the disease in a box illuminated by LED lights flickering precisely at 40 Hz. The neurones of each animal’s visual cortex began humming along at the same frequency.

The scientists gave some of the mice a week of daily sessions in the flickering lights. Compared to the mice who didn’t receive the weeklong light therapy, those that did, had 67% fewer amyloid plaques (the clumps of amyloid protein that appear to gum up the function of a brain under the influence of Alzheimer’s disease).
