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. 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 Alpha induces a more relaxed mental state while the Gamma induces a more focused mental state.
Vielight Neuro FAQ
What wavelength does the Vielight Neuro emit?
The Vielight Neuro emits 810nm NIR energy.
Why the 810nm wavelength?
The 810nm wavelength has the deepest penetration through tissue and bone, enabling photonic diffusion to the brain.
What is the difference between the Duo, Gamma and Alpha models?
The Gamma model pulses NIR light energy at 40 Hz, which has a neuromodulating effect on Gamma neural oscillations. Theoretical benefits are increased memory activity, perception, cognition.
The Alpha model pulses NIR light energy at 10 Hz. This frequency is similar to neural alpha waves. Alpha waves are correlated with the brain’s resting state, offering support for mental coordination, mindfulness and learning.
The Duo makes both of these pulse rates available to you – having both pulse rates brings the most benefits.
How much power do your devices generate?
Our devices generate sufficient power to penetrate the skull and produce statistically significant results in independent research and clinical studies.
What is the recommended usage?
The general recommended usage is to use once every other day before experimenting with more frequent usage, not exceeding once per day. For more serious cognitive impairment, the recommendation is once per day, six days a week. Please note these recommendations are theoretical, anecdotal by nature and only based on published data or ongoing clinical trials with yet unpublished results.
The Vielight Neuro enables direct contact with the scalp’s surface to maximize energy transmission and penetration while microchip-boosted cold LED diodes generate substantial power without releasing heat. Additionally, our patented intranasal technology enables photobiomodulation of the ventral brain areas.

Non-parametric cluster-based permutation test comparing the rest EEG power spectrum between active and sham tPBM. Topographical maps are color-coded according to the permutation tests t-values. Clusters of electrodes with significant difference between the two conditions are marked in ‘+’ sign (p < 0.05 and αcluster = 0.01).

Estimated delivery time is 2 to 5 business days
We recommend users with a healthy brain to use the Alpha or Gamma once every 2 days for maintenance. Users looking to try to recover brain functions should try the Alpha or the Gamma once daily for up to 6 days a week.
To avoid over stimulation, always take a rest from using the device on the 7th day and avoid using the Gamma close to bedtime. Reduce usage to once every 2 days when significant improvements are observed. Usage of the
device should not exceed one session of up to 20 minutes per day.
Everyone is different and can have different responses. If any discomfort is experienced, users should reduce the time of each session by shutting off the device before its 20-minute session is up, by reducing the number of days used per week, or by doing both.
Convenient Features: Each session is preset to last approximately 20 minutes. The device switches off automatically after each session. All Neuro 3 versions are dual voltage devices suitable for use with 110V and 220V power grids.
PBM Specifications: The LED modules and the nasal applicator emit an 810 nm wavelength, pulsing at 10 Hz frequency rate for the Alpha model, 40 Hz frequency rate for the Gamma model, and a choice of either 10 Hz or 40 Hz for the Duo model.
Near-infrared light is nearly invisible to the naked eye, making the beam appear dimmer than its power density.
