Abstract
Exposure to light affects our physiology and behaviour through a pathway connecting the retina to the circadian pacemaker in the hypothalamus - the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Recent research has identified significant individual differences in the non-visual effects of light,mediated by this pathway. Here, we discuss the fundamentals and individual differences in the non-visual effects of light. We propose a set of actions to improve our evidence database to be more diverse: understanding systematic bias in the evidence base, dedicated efforts to recruit more diverse participants, routine deposition and sharing of data, and development of data standards and reporting guidelines.
