Circadian Rhythms: The Price of Electric Light

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

A new study demonstrates that modern electric lighting has caused the near-24-hour biological clock to be set to a later time and that humans physiologically respond to seasonal changes in day length under conditions of natural light exposure.
