There are many researches that prove the energy and monetary savings that LED lighting brings to the environment and the portfolio, respectively, however, the studies do not end and this technology can help more than we think.
According to a study carried out by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), it was found that a non-invasive technique that uses LED lights can significantly reduce Beta-amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
The researchers found a considerable decrease in the visual cortex of mice, also found that the treatment that works based on brain waves known as gamma oscillations, can help repress the production of Beta-amyloid brain and also satisfies the cells responsible of the destruction of the plates.
The professor and director of the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, Li-Huei Tsai, said that although more research is still needed on the subject to determine if the method is functional with human patients, its potential is enormous because it is not very invasive and accessible.
Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by Beta-amyloid plaques, which are suspected to be detrimental to cells and brain functioning.
The professor of Neurology at the Faculty of Medicine of Harvard University, Álvaro Pascual-Leone explained that the study seeks to show the gamma oscillations that are linked to cognitive function and that in turn play a transcendental role in the cleaning of deposits.
