Human Visual systems contain receptors that assist in regulating Circadian Rhythms. Modern Lighting and architectural design provides insufficient stimulus of these systems to properly reinforce these natural biological processes leading to a state of Social Jet-lag and interrupted sleep cycles. This Seminar explores the science of these systems and details how to integrate essential spectral content in artificial lighting that entrains and reinforces healthy Circadian Rhythms.

1. Understand the role of visual receptors that cue the Circadian Rhythm system

2. Learn the essential spectral content needed to stimulate the Circadian Rhythm system

3. Explore why current technologies are lacking in the needed spectra and how they expose people to elevated ocular stress.

4. Understand why color tuning addresses only part of the issue and exposes occupants to unneeded blue light hazard.             

5. Discover lighting solutions that reinforce natural Circadian Rhythms through scientific process.
