My PhD project is a part of the larger ENLIGHT project. The ENLIGHT project aims at exploring new and optimal light conditions to improve cognition, mood, sleep and circadian rhythm in people with mild dementia. We will perform laboratory experiments testing the acute effects of different light modes on cognitive performance and emotional processing. Additionally, we will conduct a randomized controlled trial aimed at investigating the short- and long-term effects of dynamic therapy LEDs on sleep, circadian rhythm and behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia.
