Applying Melanopic Lux to Measure Biological Light Effects on Melatonin Suppression and Subjective Sleepiness.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE At the beginning of this century, a novel photopigment, melanopsin, was discovered in a sub-class of retinal ganglion cells and its action spectrum was described. Shortly after, it became evident that melanopsin is a major contributor to non-visual eye-mediated effects of light on e.g. the circadian, neuroendocrine and neurobehavioral systems… (More)
