The purpose of the study was to induce in two different ways, a phase-angle difference between the circadian pacemaker and the imposed sleep-wake cycle in humans, we intended to: (i) shift the circadian pacemaker by exposure to bright light and keep the timing of the sleep-wake cycle fixed; and (ii) keep the timing of the circadian pacemaker fixed by a constant light-dark cycle and displace sleep. We monitored dim light melatonin onset (DLMO), core body temperature and sleep. DLMO was delayed… CONTINUE READING
