Light+Building: Human Centric Lighting | Fairs | Architonic

At the end of 2017, the Nobel Prize for medicine went to three US American researchers Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young. By isolating and investigating the ‘period’ gene of the fruit fly, they were able to prove the existence of the ‘inner clock’, which controls the circadian rhythm of humans, animals and plants. The lighting industry, architects and planners, are interested in this, too, and are developing lighting solutions and concepts for a wide range of applications, based on these scientific findings. <b>Circadian rhythms – the foundation of human-centric lighting</b>

The biological rhythm of the human being is crucially influenced by the progress of sunlight. And it is, first and foremost, the proportion of blue light that is responsible for blocking or stimulating the production of the sleep hormone, melatonin. The relatively blue sunlight in the morning blocks the melatonin hormone and stimulates the activity of the stress hormone cortisol. This leads t… continue
