It has been reported in R&D that the LEDs mark a new area of neuroscience that makes use of light to stimulate targeted neural pathways in the brain. The procedure involves genetically programming specific neurons to respond to light. Despite a number of progressions within the opto-genetics field, researchers have continually struggled with the challenge of delivering light to precise regions deep within the brain. Thanks to newly developed technologies, however, scientists are able to bypass these boundaries with specifically designed powerful LEDS that are injected into the brain to provide direct illumination alongside precise control.    

Providing a vast range of home and outdoor lighting, the team at Simple Lighting have been heavily involved within the LED industry for a number of years. As such they have begun to see LED technology used in a variety of different fields, such as food preservation, broadband connections and science. A representative shares their thoughts on the latest news.

“It’s really exciting to see that LEDs could be behind such a big breakthrough in neuroscience. We’re looking forward to following the progress of this story, as well as others that show the development of the LED industry. As well as venturing into other fields, this is also currently a lot of work going into improving the quality and efficiency of LEDs.”

Established in 2009, Simple Lighting Company aims to provide high quality lighting at some of the most competitive prices on the web. The company has grown considerably in recent years and supplies over 4000 products, specialising in LED lighting, LED tape, LED strip lights as well as indoor and outdoor lighting. Simple Lighting Company considers customer service its priority, regularly adding new products to the website.
