Dr. Betsy Mills is Senior Program Manager of Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention at the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, holding a PhD in neuroscience from John Hopkins University School of Medicine. She says that bright light exposure “activates regions of the brain that promote alertness, and improves cognitive performance.” She also wrote that light engages elements that “are essential for memory formation”, as well as elements essential for overall brain health.
