    J Appl Physiol (1985) 110:1432-8. 2011
    ..The challenge will be to design a computer screen with a spectral profile that can be individually programmed to add timed, essential light information to the circadian system in humans...

    Sarah Laxhmi Chellappa
    Centre for Chronobiology, Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 6:e16429. 2011
    ..Here we investigated if commercially available compact fluorescent lamps with different colour temperatures can impact on alertness and cognitive performance...
  3. ncbi request reprint Evidence that the lunar cycle influences human sleep
    Christian Cajochen
    Centre for Chronobiology, Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel, 4012 Basel, Switzerland
    Curr Biol 23:1485-8. 2013
    ..This is the first reliable evidence that a lunar rhythm can modulate sleep structure in humans when measured under the highly controlled conditions of a circadian laboratory study protocol without time cues. ..
  4. doi request reprint Human melatonin and alerting response to blue-enriched light depend on a polymorphism in the clock gene PER3
    Sarah L Chellappa
    Centre for Chronobiology, Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel, Wilhelm Kleinstrasse 27, CH 4012 Basel, Switzerland
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab 97:E433-7. 2012
    ..Light exposure, particularly at the short-wavelength range, triggers several nonvisual responses in humans. However, the extent to which the melatonin-suppressing and alerting effect of light differs among individuals remains unknown...
