These results are a confirmation of this study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19995444

“… symptoms of headache, sleep disturbance, cognition, mood dysregulation, anxiety, and irritability improved. Symptoms were monitored by depression scales and a novel patient diary system specifically designed for this study. NIR light in the power range of 10-15 W at 810 nm and 980 nm can safely and effectively treat chronic symptoms of TBI. The clinical benefit and effects of infrared phototherapy on mitochondrial function and secondary molecular events are discussed in the context of adequate radiant energy penetration.”

This study cannot be replicated at home, and too many variables are missing from the abstract. However, a TBI patient or caregiver might ask their doctor for help in getting this treatment.
