This webinar, hosted by the OSA Color Technical Group, will focus on the effect of light on aspects related to circadian rhythms and sleep, a topic that has received a lot of media attention in the past years. Starting from the fundamental findings, Christian Cajochen from the Centre for Chronobiology, Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel will discuss our current state of knowledge on how short-wavelength, or "blue" light, specifically can impact circadian rhythms and sleep. The webinar will be focused on empirical evidence and placing it into the context of interventions in the home and office environment.
What You Will Learn:
• Fundamentals in the non-visual effects of light, such as melatonin suppression and circadian phase shifting
• Experimental methods and protocols to address non-visual effects of light
• Optimizing the lighting environment to minimize circadian disruption
Who Should Attend:
• Scientists and professionals interested in the effect of light "beyond vision"
• Lighting designers and engineers
