Indoor lighting Drastically Inhibits Learning and Memory

Indoor lighting Drastically Inhibits Learning and Memory


The hippocampus lost about 30 percent of capacity in low light in just 4 weeks as well as a steep decline in brain derived neurotrophic factor (Animal Model)

* Grass rats were housed in either a 12: 12 h bright light–dark (brLD, 1,000 lux) or dim light-dark (dimLD, 50 lux) cycle.

In short, I review clinical research on an almost daily basis. What I post tends to be articles that are relevant to the readers in addition to some curiosities that have intriguing potential. As a hobby, I truly enjoy the puzzle-solving play that statistics and programming as in the python language bring to the table. I just do not enjoy problem-solving, I love problem-solving and the childlike inspiration and exploration of that innocent exhilaration of discovering something new. Enjoy ;-)
