Investigating the contribution of short wavelengths in the alerting effect of bright light.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Short-wavelengths can have an acute impact on alertness, which is allegedly due to their action on intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells. Classical photoreceptors cannot, however, be excluded at this point in time as contributors to the alerting effect of light. The objective of this study was to compare the alerting effect at… (More)
