Web Desk: A study reveals that spending too much time in dimly lit rooms may change the brain’s structure and affect people’s ability to remember and learn.
In this study, researchers studied the brains of Nile grass rats after exposing them to dim and bright light for four weeks. The rodents who exposed to dim light lost 30 per cent of their brain ability.
According to the Antonia, Professor at Michigan State University, “When we exposed the rats of the dim light, mimicking the cloudy days of Midwestern winters or typical indoor lighting, the animals showed impairments in spatial learning.”
Lead author of the study, Joel Soler said, “Since there are fewer connections being made, this made in diminished learning and memory performance. In other words, dim lights are producing dimwits.”
