Brain waves called gamma oscillations appear to activate glial cells in the brain which clear out the amyloid plaques. Researchers used flashes of light to tune gamma oscillations in mouse brains, effectively resetting them to pulse at their normal rate of 40 Hertz. It still remains to be determined whether this may help treat Alzheimer’s disease in humans but the preliminary results in mice are promising.
