OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND Major cardiovascular events frequently increase in the morning due to abrupt changes in the sympatho-vagal cardiac control during the transition from sleep to wakefulness. These neural changes are translated into stepwise increases in cardiac functions, resulting in a potential cardiovascular stress. Here, we explored whether light can "optimize" heart rate and its neural control, by actively promoting a less steep transition from sleep to wakefulness, thus minimizing… CONTINUE READING
