Re: Blinking LED project to affect people afflicted with Alzheimer’s

Epileptic seizures are triggered by flickers in the range of 3-30hz. A 40hz flicker appears as constant light to an observer. But it's good for anyone else reading to be aware of the concerns you bring up. I assume, with your advocacy of arduino over RPi and your mentioning of running an OS (which I...

Re: Blinking LED project to affect people afflicted with Alzheimer’s

Yeah. I read the article. Doesn't mean it won't work. The principal is sound and the research is promising. I'm a computational biologist. I went into biology because of Alzheimer's. My Dad is starting to have memory issues. My grandfather had lewy body dementia. I just want to DO something. And thi...

Re: Blinking LED project to affect people afflicted with Alzheimer’s

"The researchers built a simple device consisting of a strip of LEDs that can be programmed to flicker at different frequencies. Using this device, the researchers found that an hour of exposure to light flickering at 40 hertz enhanced gamma oscillations and reduced beta amyloid levels by half in th...

Blinking LED project to affect people afflicted with Alzheimer’s

Has anyone started a project to create an LED that blinks at 40Hz, based on the recent discovery that a 40Hz blinking LED can reduce beta amyloid plaques in the brain by 50%?
