In 2018, Dr Berman was invited to speak about how Photobiomodulation (Light Therapy) & Neurofeedback (brain mapping) could help those with Alzheimer's, Dementia, or Parkinson's. During this podcast, Dr Berman shares his experiences as a psychotherapist that helped him recognize how there could be potentially many neurological disorders that were caused by undiagnosed traumatic brain injury. Through this realization, he set to explore how he could combine brain mapping (using a QEEG) and photobiomodulation as a treatment for other neurological disorders like Alzheimer's, Dementia, and Parkinson's.
Photobiomodulation (light therapy) is the process of using Near Infrared Light to both stimulate blood flow in your brain and protein. This light is pulsed at a specific frequency between the range of 700 and 900 nanometers, and then a QEEG (brain mapping) is used to monitor the changes in a person's brain.
At the end of 2020, Dr. Berman completed his recruitment for study (granted by the National Institute of Health (NIH)) that will follow the progress of a 100 patients with with early to mid-stage dementia. In early 2021, he hopes to have published the results of this study.
