The Night Mode Of Smartphones May Have The Opposite Impact
A study at the University of Manchester has led to a widely believed situation. According to the research, mice are preparing to fall asleep under the blue color, not under the yellow color. This research contradicts the night mode of smartphones.
With the widespread use of smartphones, our lives have changed greatly. Technology manufacturers have introduced many new features to their smartphones every year. Developers have been obsessed with eye health, especially for the last few years. Our smartphones now offer night modes (blue light filters) so that we can sleep comfortably at night.
Night modes usually change the vivid and bright areas of the phone to a warm yellow color after a certain hour. Thus, it helps users to fall asleep more comfortably. At least until now, the warm yellow color was believed to sleep more comfortably. However, a recent study reveals that this situation may not be very realistic.
Mice prepare to sleep at blue light instead of yellow light
A study conducted at the University of Manchester revealed that the yellow light effect, which we believe to be true to date, is actually the opposite. The study, led by a scientist named Tim Brown, showed that the mice ‘bodies had the opposite effect on yellow light. Brown thinks that this effect may also apply to people.
The body detects that the dimmer and blue colors are a signal to sleep. But the brighter and warmer colors, says the body should remain standing. Research also shows that brightness is more important than colors. In other words, minimizing the brightness of the phone’s screen rather than the yellow color makes it easier to fall asleep.
Blue light filter may be the main cause of sleep problems
Dr. In the context of the research led by Brown, the mice were reflected in different colors that kept the brightness constant. According to normal conditions and general beliefs, the mice ‘bodies had to be prepared for sleeping in yellow. However, it was not expected and the mice prepared themselves to sleep under blue light. In other words, this study revealed that the yellow light, which we believe to date, actually has the opposite effect.
It is not known at this time whether the research has been carried out on rats or not on humans. However, dr. Brown and his team want to continue their work to prove that these results can be very valid for people. He said that the findings were very important. Brown is now working to see if this research is valid for people.
