The effects of red (632 nm), green (540 nm) and infrared (904 nm) light sources on the peripheral nervous system were examined. Only the red and green wavelengths have an effect on the Compound Action Potential (CAP) of the nerve. This agrees with our hypothesis that porphyrins absorb the irradiated light. A light source which meets the requirements and specifications of our research is being built.
