The advent of tuneable, multi-channel LED light source technology enables vision scientists to probe better the human response to light, yielding greater understanding of how human physiology has adapted to natural environmental illuminations. At the same time, novel lighting technology allows designers to tune lighting to shape human behaviour in different environments. In this talk, I will discuss the effects of spectral tuning of light in terms of both the visual and non-visual systems, and their possible interactions.
