Dumber In Dim Light!

Dumber In Dim Light!

This is the cloudy time of year and if you’re feeling a little dim, you might want to turn up the lights. A new study found that rats who were exposed to brighter room lighting performed much better on various cognitive tasks than did their dim-roomed counterparts. What’s more, the rats who didn’t have the benefit of good lighting lost an average of 30% of the capacity of the brain that handles learning and memory. I guess I’ll have to come out of my cave more often.

Get the bright idea!
