This session explores the use of architectural light and darkness to mediate the effect of indoor living on a species adapted to live in the natural world. An overview of the science in a straightforward and understandable way will be presented on, using compelling graphics and images, with references to published journal articles. The non-visual pathway of photoreception will be explored along with the effect on circadian rhythms, physiology and behavior. The recently coined phrase circadian light will be explained, along with the action spectrum for circadian light.
