Pre-pubertal, mid-pubertal children more sensitive to evening light exposure

August 25, 2015

Children in early to mid-puberty are prone to evening light sensitivity and suppressed melatonin levels, potentially leading to disrupted sleep patterns after repeated evening light exposure, according to research in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“Our group has provided evidence of biological processes that make it challenging for teens to get enough sleep and then to be rested for school when they need to get up so early,” Mary Carskadon, PhD, a professor of psychiatry and human behavior at Brown University, told Endocrine Today. “The phenomenon is called a phase delay and has its roots in the circadian timing system. Melatonin suppression, as tested in this new study, is linked to light's effects on this circadian system.”
