The color of light could have a significant impact on the way the brain's clock measures the time of day.
"This is the first time that we've been able to test the theory that [color] affects our body clock in any mammal. It has always been very hard to separate the change in [color] to the change in brightness but using new experimental tools and a psychophysics approach we were successful," said study leader Timothy Brown from the Faculty of Life Sciences.
The findings were published in a recent edition of the journal PLOS Biology.
