- How we can use light to see deep inside our bodies and brains. In a series of mind-bending demos, inventor Mary Lou Jepsen shows how we can use red light to see and potentially stimulate what’s inside our bodies and brains. Taking us to the edge of optical physics, Jepsen unveils new technologies that utilize light and sound to track tumors, measure neural activity and could possibly replace the MRI machine with a cheaper, more efficient and wearable system.

- Healing the Brain with Light
The healing benefits of some lasers have long been valued – from high-power laser that cuts human tissue to cold laser that enhances cell metabolism and relieves pain. Now pioneering work by one neurologist from Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, using advanced low-light laser therapy to penetrate the skull, is changing the future for patients with traumatic brain injury and degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
