Office Lighting Might Make You Dumber

posted by John Lund -

Researchers at Michigan State University exposed rats to 30 days of office style lighting. After only a month, rats showed a 30% decline in activity in their hippocampus, the area of the brain associated with memory and learning. But another month of natural lighting brought the rats back to normal. So it's apparently reversible.

It might be time to open the blinds at work, and enjoy that natural lighting.
