IMPACT OF LIGHT ON THE FUNCTIONING OF THE BRAIN IN THE AGE OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Summary : Whether natural or artificial, light is at the center of our lives. However, in recent years, we have seen the technological advances that have allowed the development of new light sources. How they do they act differently on the human brain? Did you know that their daily use, from morning to night, has as many risks as benefits for children, adolescents and adults? Dr. Hébert explained how light affects work performance, mood and drive our biological rhythms. It will also address the potentially damaging effects of certain types of light especially on sleep and seasonal depression, in order to make judicious use both at work and at home. After the lecture, participants will be able to better understand how the brain responds to the many light sources to which we are increasingly exposed.
