AMPARs expressed in different types of basal ganglia neurons are markedly diverse, whereas NMDARs are less variable in functional properties that are relevant for excitatory synaptic transmission and neuronal vulnerability.
Non-Visual Effects of Light on Melatonin, Alertness and Cognitive Performance: Can Blue-Enriched Light Keep Us Alert?

The findings suggest that the sensitivity of the human alerting and cognitive response to polychromatic light at levels as low as 40 lux, is blue-shifted relative to the three-cone visual photopic system.
Ability grouping of gifted students: effects on academic self-concept and boredom.
Boredom attributions changed over time and supported the assumption that gifted classes provide more appropriate levels of challenge, and interventions to counterbalance the negative effect of exposure to a high-ability reference group should be implemented when ability grouping begins.

GABAergic Inhibition of Histaminergic Neurons Regulates Active Waking But Not the Sleep–Wake Switch or Propofol-Induced Loss of Consciousness
Surprisingly, GABAergic transmission onto histaminergic neurons had no effect in regulating the natural sleep–wake cycle and, in the case of GABAA receptors, for propofol-induced loss of righting reflex, which makes it unlikely that the Histaminergic TMN has a central role in anesthesia.
Human melatonin and alerting response to blue-enriched light depend on a polymorphism in the clock gene PER3.

First evidence is provided that humans homozygous for the PER3 5/5 allele are particularly sensitive to blue-enriched light, as indexed by the suppression of endogenous melatonin and waking theta activity.
