STUDY OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of nocturnal light intensity on circadian adaptation to simulated night work. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Normal young men and women, simulated night work, home sleep. DESIGN AND MEASUREMENTS We compared temperature rhythm phase shifts following timed exposure to high (approximately 5700 lux 3 hours/day), medium (approximately 1230 lux 3 hours/day) or constant low-intensity (< 250 lux) light during consecutive night shifts. Subjects (n = 35) followed a… CONTINUE READING
