Scientific studies on green light

These studies assess blue light vs green light’s effectiveness in increasing alertness, performance and brain activity and the impact on sleep. The results indicate that blue light is more effective at increasing alertness, performance, brain activity and negatively impacting sleepiness. They also indicate that green light is not a major factor in increasing alertness or performance, nor impacting sleepiness, and in fact, one study on mice shows that green light increased sleepiness.
