Following the discovery of the intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cell in the human retina, a lot of effort has been expended by researchers on exploring what are called the non-visual effects of light.
While this effort has resulted in an increase in understanding by researchers it has also produced several premature claims for lighting systems that will enhance human health.
This, in turn, has caused anxiety amongst lighting designers and manufacturers. Their concern is that the claimed benefits may not be evident in practice, or worse, they may be detrimental to human health, or, alternatively, they may be true and to ignore them will mean being left behind.
The objective of this symposium is to set out where and how lighting can confidently be applied to enhance human health.
The SLL Lighting Research & Technology Symposium: Applying Light for Human Health will be held online, spanning 5 sessions from 2 – 6 November 2020. Registration is available for single sessions or for the whole week.
