Harmful Effects Of Dim Light During Sleep

Harmful Effects Of Dim Light During Sleep


 For those who need some form of light when sleeping, it is worth considering the dangers.
  • Exposure to very dim light during sleep — even if it does not noticeably impair your sleep — may affect your brain function and cognition during the day
  • Sleeping under 10 lux light conditions decreased activation in a brain region involved in response inhibition, attentional control and the detection of relevant cues when performing a task the following day
  • Animal research found that nighttime exposure to 5 lux for three weeks in a row produced depression-like symptoms and impaired cognition
