The seasons, and daily physical rhythms can have a profound effect on the physiology of the living organism, which includes immune status. The immune system can be influenced by a variety of signals and one of them is photic stimulus. Light may regulate the immunity through the neuroendocrine system leading to the most recent branch of research the "Photoimmunomodulation". Mammals perceive visible light (400-700 nm) through some specialized photoreceptors located in retina like retinal ganglion… CONTINUE READING
