Lighting Research Center Releases Video Series on Light and Health

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has released a series of short videos on the science of lighting for human health. The videos are now available on YouTube and on the LRC website.
Three videos are currently available:
1) Circadian Rhythms. A brief overview of human circadian rhythms, why they’re important, and the need for staying entrained with lighting.
2) Circadian Stimulus. A brief overview of circadian stimulus (CS), a metric developed at the LRC to quantify the extent to which lighting impacts the human circadian system. Learn about the role light levels and spectrum play in CS, and the impact of other qualities of lighting on the circadian system.
3) Circadian Stimulus Calculator. How to use the LRC’s circadian stimulus calculator, which quantifies CS provided by one or more light sources. The calculator is available at
A total of nine videos are planned for release this year, covering topics such as how to provide healthy lighting for office workers, lighting in schools, and the future of circadian lighting.
