Recently the industry has learned about Intrinsically Photosensitive Retinal Ganglion Cells (ipRGCs) and circadian regulation while many in the industry are promoting tunable lighting for health and wellness. However the science is complex and controversial. Let’s explore when to use light and when to use caution.
- Hear an overview of the research: What do we know, what do we NOT know?
- Understand how individual characteristics and lifestyles could affect a lighting recommendation.
- Understand why it is difficult to define principles of light and health.
- Develop sensitivity on which populations and applications are most vulnerable.
