A common treatment for Seasonal Affective Disorder is Bright light therapy (BLT), which involves exposing a light to the eyes with appropriate or adequate intensity, duration and time of day. BLT has been recognised for its effects on the physical and affective symptoms of depression, on sleep time and sleep duration. Jacob Itzhacki examines the rewarding effects of light and the behavioural and biochemical mechanisms by which they take effect.
