ScienceDaily, 5 January 2021. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/01/210105104832.htm First direct observation of magnetic field affecting autofluorescence of flavins in living cells. Summary: New research shows how X-Men villain Magneto’s super powers could really work. Researchers have made the first observations of biological magnetoreception – live, unaltered cells responding to a magnetic field in real time. This discovery is...

Top Breakthrough Discovery | Published April 2019 in Nature Cell Biology After discovering a light-dependent molecular pathway that regulates how blood vessels develop in the eye, scientists at Cincinnati Children’s suggest it may be possible to use light therapy to help preterm infants avoid life-long vision problems. A study in mouse models reveals that normal function of...

Open access article Buch, J.; Hammond, B. Photobiomodulation of the Visual System and Human Health. Int. J. Mol. Sci. 2020, 21, 8020. Review Abstract Humans express an expansive and detailed response to wavelength differences within the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum. This is most clearly manifest, and most studied, with respect to a relatively small range of electromagnetic radiation that...

CORRECTED PROOF Sleep, zsaa194, https://doi.org/10.1093/sleep/zsaa194 Published: 21 September 2020 Abstract Study Objectives Blue-depleted lighting reduces the disruptive effects of evening artificial light on the circadian system in laboratory experiments, but this has not yet been shown in naturalistic settings. The aim of the current study was to test the effects of residing in an evening blue-depleted light...
