As the world’s only transcranial-intranasal brain photobiomodulation (PBM) device, the Vielight Neuro is is the result of years of engineering and research. The Vielight Neuro’s powerful, patented transcranial-intranasal technology offers an unparalleled advantage for reaching the ventral and cortical layers of the brain.
The Neuro Gamma pulses light at the 40 Hz frequency. This frequency is similar to neural gamma waves. Gamma waves are correlated with increased memory activity, perception, cognition and creativity.
The patented combination of transcranial and intranasal neurostimulation makes the Neuro Gamma ideal for comprehensive brain photobiomodulation, by simultaneously stimulating the ventral and cortical brain areas.
Powerful yet simple, the Vielight Neuro Gamma features microchip-boosted transcranial LED diodes, which generate sufficient power to penetrate the skull (Link). Furthermore, the Neuro Gamma’s refined form factor allows it to fit a wider variety of head shapes and sizes.
At present, our engineering team is able to extract one of the highest amounts of power in the world from a near-infrared LED energy source.
Why the nose?
Being just 3 inches from the brain, the intranasal channel is the most efficient channel for photobiomodulation of the underside (ventral) brain area.
These ventral structures within the brain’s core have important functions.
Difference between the Alpha and Gamma
- The Vielight Neuro Gamma’s 40 Hz pulse rate correlates with EEG gamma brain oscillations. This pulse rate differs from the 10 Hz pulse rate of the Vielight Neuro Alpha.
- The scientific reasoning behind the difference between the 655 nm and 810 nm wavelengths can be found in this independent study : (Link)
- Near-infrared light is nearly invisible to the naked eye, making the beam appear dimmer than its power density.

Please note that this device is not the same as the Neuro RX Gamma that is currently being used in our clinical trials. The RX Gamma is intended to be fully compliant with regulatory requirements for a medical device and will not be available without regulatory clearance. The “Neuro RX Gamma” is therefore a different product from the “Neuro Gamma”.
