Study Summary

This trial will look at whether a non-invasive brain stimulation technique can help to lower stress levels.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for young adults aged 18-30 who are generally healthy. It's not suitable for those with chronic medical or neurological disorders, pregnant individuals, people currently ill (like having a cold or flu), or anyone unable to engage in physical exercise.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing the effects of transcranial infrared laser stimulation (LLLT) on how the body responds to stress at a cardiovascular and metabolic level. This non-invasive technique aims to modulate brain activity using light.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since LLLT is non-invasive and uses low-level lasers, side effects are typically minimal but may include slight discomfort at the site of application, headache, or dizziness immediately after treatment.
