This chapter explores the application of photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy for dementia, providing an overview of various types of dementia and discussing the potential benefits and limitations of PBM in both animal models and human studies. Section 1 introduces the concept of dementia, discussing its various forms, including mild cognitive impairment (1.1), Alzheimer’s disease (1.2), and vascular dementia (2.3). The chapter delves into the problem of Alzheimer's disease (1.2.1) and presents an overview of animal models used for studying Alzheimer's disease (1.2.2). Section 2 focuses on the application of PBM therapy for dementia, with subsections discussing its use in animal models (2.1) and human studies (2.2). The section provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of research, highlighting the potential benefits of PBM therapy in alleviating cognitive decline, improving memory, and promoting neuroprotection.
