  • Many aspects of human physiology and behavior are dominated by 24 h rhythms that have a major impact on our health and well-being. The daily light-dark cycle plays the primary role in synchronizing these rhythms with the 24 h day. The properties of light that determine the efficacy of its circadian phase-resetting effects include the timing, intensity, duration, pattern, wavelength, and history of exposure. Major advances have been made in understanding how light is detected by the eye to reset… CONTINUE READING
