Paul Chazot: Infrared light therapy

Research led by Dr Paul Chazot on a new infrared light therapy that might have the potential to help people with dementia.

People wear a specially adapted helmet which delivers infrared light deep into the brain for six-minutes per treatment.

This stimulates mitochondria that generate most of the chemical energy needed to power the biochemical reaction in the brain’s cells.
