The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the exposure to bright light on EEG activity and subjective sleepiness at rest and at the mental task during nocturnal sleep deprivation. Eight male subjects lay awake in semi-supine in a reclining seat from 21:00 to 04:30 under the bright (BL; >2500 lux) or the dim (DL; <150 lux) light conditions.(More)
The oculocardiac reflex was quantitatively studied in 15 patients with strabismus. The reflex was observed in all patients when the medial rectus and inferior oblique muscles were stretched; the medial rectus muscle had a lower threshold than the inferior oblique. Bradycardia was evoked in 7 of the 15 patients when the lateral rectus was tractioned with(More)
This study was intended to determine the effects of continuous bright light exposure on cardiovascular responses, particularly heart rate variability (HRV), at rest and during performance of mental tasks with acute nocturnal sleep deprivation. Eight healthy male subjects stayed awake from 21.00 to 04.30 hours under bright (BL, 2800 lux) or dim (DL, 120 lux)(More)
