To prove and seek suitable condition for reduction of β-amyloid peptides in neuron cells that are the main cause of this disease. Therefore, the result of this study would be

LightTherapy 01 LightTherapy 02

In few years, people around the world have become to aging society. Alzheimer’s treatment and medication is becoming popularity topic in the world. Researchers are looking for new effective treatments to alter the course of the disease and improve the quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Nowadays, rehabilitation for light therapy is a new way to alternative medicine. The potential of low level light therapy (LLLT) has a lot of benefits in retinal disease, stroke, neurotrauma, neurodegeneration, and memory loss. This study integrates the basic knowledge between optics and cell culture together. Neuron cells are mimicked to cells liked Alzheimer’s disease. Then, Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are used for light irradiation to mimicked-neuron cells at a variety of wavelengths, intensities, energy and emitting profiles in order to prove and seek suitable condition for reduction of β-amyloid peptides in neuron cells that are the main cause of this disease. Therefore, the result of this study would be
