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...
