RE: Royal Society recognises the International Year of Light through as series of public talks

Running from September to December 2015, ten New Zealand speakers will address the many facets of light: from massive stars to tiny lasers; as a health risk and a health benefit; as a source of inspiration in our history and in our literature.

LIGHTING UP THE CLOCK | Dr Guy Warman | Bookmark the livestream

Our biological clocks, which govern our daily rhythms and sleep cycles, can be disrupted by general anaesthesia. But why is this? Dr Guy Warman is a senior lecturer in the School of Medicine, University of Auckland. He and his team are investigating the effects general anaesthetics have on the circadian clock and sleep, and how these effects may be treated using light.

We’ll let you know when the next livestreams are available to bookmark.
