Course Outline:
Friday, November 4th, 2022, | 12:00 -1:00pm

This course will present data from patients treated using LLLT in combination with the standard inpatient rehabilitation approach.  Principles of neurocognitive rehabilitation, neuromodulation and brain/body computer interface will be covered in this lecture.  Dr. Morales-Quezada will feature a series of cases of patients with severe neurological damage and present the clinical results supporting LLLT to promote recovery and function.

Topics Include:


  • Introduction

  • Principles of neuroplasticity and learning

  • Physiopathology of neurological injuries

  • Neuromodulation and Photochemistry

  • Case presentations

  • Conclusions

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will learn the pathological mechanisms after traumatic, ischemic, and hemorrhagic neural damage

  • To understand how LLLT can promote recovery and neuroplasticity

  • Attendees will learn how to integrate different modalities of treatment in complex medical environments
