How the Human Biological Clock responds to Light

How the Human Biological Clock responds to Light

By using MRI scans to identify and image the human biological clock located in the brain, Johanna Meijer, Professor of Neurophysiology, Robin Schoonderwoerd, PhD candidate at the Department of Cell and Chemical Biology of the LUMC, and colleagues discovered how different colours of light affect our internal clock. The work of Schoonderwoerd, Meijer and colleagues offers new insights into the effect of light on the biological clock, which is especially important for nursing homes, clinical settings and even for children’s bedrooms.

Their findings have been published in PNAS.
