Study ties nighttime lighting to depression | Health Tech – CNET News

The findings were relevant not just for those who work at night, but for those who sleep with the lights on, fly frequently on red-eyes, and spend nights in hospitals.

Now the same team has found that this link to depression exists–at least in the hamsters they studied–after night exposure to even the dim light of a TV or computer screen
