  • A century of research and practice have optimized the use of electric lighting in buildings to support human vision. However, recent lines of research show that light is also important to human circadian regulation, as reflected in such diverse phenomena as depression, sleep quality, alertness, and, perhaps, even health. Although light is essential to both vision and circadian regulation, research shows that the biophysical processes that govern circadian regulation are very different from… CONTINUE READING
