Research from the University of Surrey and Harvard Medical School, conducted by mathematicians and sleep scientists predict that turning down the lights and reducing screen time in the hours before bed, is a more effective solution to sleep deprived teenagers than later school start times.

This has important implications for how we design the light environment at work in our modern light-polluted societies. Something that could have a positive impact on the wellbeing for all office workers.
