The circadian rhythms of the night shift worker show very little phase shift in response to the daytime sleep and night work schedule. One strategy for producing circadian adaptation may be to use appropriately timed exposure to high-intensity light. We attempted to shift the circadian temperature rhythms of seven normal subjects while they followed a sleep schedule that gradually delayed (2 h per day) until sleep occurred during the daytime, as is customary for workers during the night shift… Expand
Light Treatment for Sleep Disorders: Consensus Report
TLDR
The bright light studies support the idea that the control of light and dark can be used to overcome many of the problems of shift work, however, despite ongoing practical applications (such as at NASA), much basic research is still needed. Expand
Circadian rhythms of melatonin, thy raid‐stimulating hormone and body temperature: Relationships among those rhythms and effect of sleep‐wake cycle
TLDR
The hormonal profiles during the days of shifted sleep‐wake cycle suggest that plasma melatonin and TSH rhythms are basically regulated by an endogenous biological clock and that a common unitary pacemaker probably regulates these two rhythms. Expand
Night-shift work in antarctica: Sleep characteristics and bright light treatment
TLDR
Changes in sleep parameters during and after night-shift and the effects of bright white and dim red light treatment on re adaptation after day-shift during winter were studied in 14 men on the British Antarctic Survey Base of Halley. Expand
The effect of light on the human circadian pacemaker.

TLDR
Exposure to a cyclic light stimulus can induce strong (type 0) resetting of the human circadian pacemaker, indicating that exposure to light affects the pacemaker's amplitude of oscillation as well as its phase. Expand

The Effect of Bright Light on Physiological Circadian Rhythms and Subjective Alertness of Shift Work Nurses in Iran
TLDR
It is demonstrated that photic stimulation in a hospital setting can have a powerful influence on the adjustment of the circadian system and significantly improved alertness. Expand
Sleep wakefulness cycle
TLDR
A significant shift in the subjective alertness rhythm was observed on D3 and D4 with reentrainment by D5 and major performance effects were decrements during and after the light treatment with time‐dependent differences in high and low memory capacity tasks. Expand
Estimating the Endogenous Circadian Temperature Rhythm without Keeping People Awake
TLDR
This demasking procedure appears to be a useful tool in estimating the endogenous temperature rhythm and appears to work equally well for young and elderly subjects. Expand
Circadian misalignment, reward-related brain function, and adolescent alcohol involvement.

TLDR
There is growing evidence supporting a path by which circadian misalignment may disrupt reward mechanisms, which may in turn accelerate the transition from alcohol use to AUDs in vulnerable adolescents. Expand
Adapting to phase shifts, I. An experimental model for jet lag and shift work
TLDR
After the rapid 9-h phase advance, sleep patterns, temperature amplitude, aMT6s acrophase, alertness, and performance took at least 5 days to reestablish normal baseline patterns, providing an effective and inexpensive model to study adaptation strategies in real life. Expand

TLDR
In the subjects whose temperature rhythms shifted, the direction of shift depended on the timing of light exposure relative to the baseline temperature phase, consistent with a phase-response curve. Expand
Timed exposure to bright light improves sleep and alertness during simulated night shifts.
TLDR
Exposure to bright light between midnight and 0400 hours is effective in ameliorating the sleep and alertness problems associated with transition to night shift, and the greater delay in core temperature rhythm for the treatment group was associated with significantly higher alertness across the night shift and improved sleep quality during the day. Expand
Exposure to bright light and darkness to treat physiologic maladaptation to night work.
TLDR
It is concluded that maladaptation of the human circadian system to night work, with its associated decline in alertness, performance, and quality of daytime sleep, can be treated effectively with scheduled exposure to bright light at night and darkness during the day. Expand
Inversion of the sleep wakefulness pattern: effects on circadian variations in psychophysiological activation.
TLDR
It was concluded that all variables were strongly affected by the exposure to night work and that adrenaline excretion indicated a stress reponse of the organism. Expand

TLDR
The typical student experiences the power of these circadian oscillations when staying up all night studying for an exam, and later in the morning, she or he will become more alert and start to feel better, despite the further accumulation of sleep deprivation. Expand
