Light and the Circadian Rhythm – 24/05/19

Light and the Circadian Rhythm: The Key to a Good Night's Sleep?

The cycle of sleep and wakefulness is one of the key human behaviours.We spend about a third of our lives asleep and cannot survive without it. When asleep, our brain memorises and processes information. Our body clears toxins and repairs itself, allowing us to function properly when awake. One study suggested that after 17-19 hours of staying awake, performance on cognitive tasks may be similar to having had too much to drink.Find out more about how we can help your office by looking at light and the circadian rhythm!

Women's Brains Work Better in Warmer Offices, Study Finds.

Scientists have raised the stakes in the battle of the sexes over office air conditioning by discovering women’s brains work better at higher temperatures. Women’s productivity suffers more than men’s in cold temperatures. Men, on the other hand, work better when the temperature is cooler, according to a study published in the journal PLOS One.

The study, conducted in Germany, tested the ability of 500 men and women to perform a series of tasks at a variety of temperatures. At higher temperatures, women perform better on maths and verbal tasks while the reverse is true for men.
