The acute effects of ambient light on emotional processing may differ from its effects on mood lasting longer, but the present results in healthy subjects have important implications for our understanding of the mechanisms by which changes in lighting can improve mood, not only in mood disorders with light therapy, but also in our daily lives, paying more attention to our environment light at home and at work.Researchers at the Cyclotron Research Centre , Geneva Center for Neuroscience and the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences , and Surrey Sleep Research Centre investigated the immediate effect of light, the composition and color of the brain, emotion processing using MRI. The results of their study show that the color of light affects how the brain processes emotional stimuli.
Much of the evidence is at the discretion of the companies, and the agency said it would inspect all production facilities to monitor compliance. But the rule for the first time takes more responsibility to confirm that’s in the bottle they sell is what’s on the label.
The brain activity of healthy volunteers was recorded while they listened to ‘angry voices’ and ‘voice neutral’ and were exposed to a light blue or green. Blue light has not only increased responses to emotional stimuli in the ‘area under’ the brain and hippocampus, which is important for memory processes, but also led to closer interaction between the area of voice, the amygdala , which is a key area in emotion regulation and the hypothalamus, which is essential for regulating the biological rhythms of light .
This shows that the functional organization of the brain was affected by blue light.
