Melatonin Suppression Does not Automatically Alter Sleepiness, Vigilance, Sensory Processing, or Sleep

Dr. Christine Blume, guest

Today’s episode focuses on a recently published manuscript in the journal SLEEP, entitled Melatonin suppression does not automatically alter sleepiness, vigilance, sensory processing or sleep, that reviews an investigation purposed to address this gap in knowledge. In this episode, our host is joined by the lead author from the manuscript, Dr. Christine Blume, to discuss this investigation, which leveraged a novel technique known as metameric light or silent substitution to isolate the effects of evening light exposure on ipRGCs while controlling the effects on other photoreceptors.
