How 40 Hz Light and Sound Waves Could Halt Alzheimer’s

WHOOOOOOAAAAAA! This is pretty wild. Recent research at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory has discovered that activating specific brain waves through light and sound therapy can enhance peptide release from interneurons, aiding in the removal of Alzheimer’s-related proteins via the brain’s glymphatic system (translation: BRAAAAIN DRAAAIIIIIN!)

The study found that flickering lights and clicking sounds at a gamma brain rhythm frequency of 40 Hz can slow Alzheimer's progression and alleviate symptoms, as demonstrated in both human volunteers and laboratory mice.

This discovery is important because it suggests a new, non-invasive way to treat Alzheimer’s by using light and sound to help the brain get rid of these proteins.
