Course Description

Join us for this three module course to explore the cutting edge technology of transcranial tphotobiomodulation (tPBM). Transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) is a complicated term for a very simple idea: using red or infrared light to penetrate the skull and stimulate cellular functioning, increase circulation, and so much more. Its neuroprotective applications have helped many with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury, and mental health conditions. Considering that tPBM appears to have a high degree of safety, the technique could help expand the efficacy of brain and mental health treatments beyond medication.


This course will walk students through an extensive overview of PBM, its mechanisms and functions, and the applications of PBM on the brain.

  • Module 1: What is Photobiomodulation?
  • Module 2: PBM Principles and Mechanisms of Action
  • Module 3: Photobiomodulation on the Brain

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Define photobiomodulation and the evolution of this technology.
  2. Explain the various mechanisms of PBM
  3. Describe how PBM can be applied to the brain specifically.

About Maria Da Costa

Maria graduated from Nova Southeastern University with a bachelor’s in Biology and a minor in Psychology. During her time as a Student Researcher at NSU Rumbaugh-Goodwin Institute for Cancer Research, she conducted controlled experiments using various laboratory techniques, such as gel electrophoresis, Western Blot, and qPCR. Maria contributed to research projects, including studying cell cycle arrest induced by histone acetylation and exploring epigenetic modifications in genes associated with tumorigenesis.

Upon graduation from NSU, Maria worked in the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Miami. There, she specialized in cultivating primary intestinal mice organoids, maintained precise records, and conducted experiments related to immunotherapy treatments. She also managed transgenic mouse databases and summarized experimental data.

At Neuronic, Maria’s role as Research Coordinator consists of managing a wide spectrum of research projects involving the Neuradiant 1070 PBM device. This includes overseeing collaborations with clinics and researchers interested in further expanding the PBM research
field and orchestrating large-scale clinical trials, both within and outside Neuronic. She leads the design and execution of Neuronic’s first clinical trial, dedicated to assessing the impact of the Neuradiant device on individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Maria also handles vital communications with regulatory entities such as the FDA to secure a path towards obtaining medical device licenses.
