Blue light and its Effects on the human BrainScience project video

Discussion

The results you achieved in this experiment may provide a glimpse into the effects of blue light.

If the self-reported ratings after the viewing were higher or the same level as the initial ratings under the blue conditions, this would support recent research that claims that blue light has the ability to help us regulate our emotions.

Many of us spend more time indoors than outdoors, reducing our exposure to natural sunlight. Over the course ofthe next few days, pay attention to your feelings of well-being throughout the day, paying specific attention to the times when you are outdoors versus indoors. Reflect on whether you notice in yourself any changes in mental alertness or sense of well being.

Make it Your Own:

Repeat the experiment using one light spectrum per group.

#Answers to Questions:

Q: What is the difference between the different light spectrums?

A: Each spectrum of light has its own wave length. Red has the longest wave length, followed by orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.
