"CONCLUSIONS: The magnitude of the phase shifts are comparable to those obtained using high-intensity white light in winter-depressives. The phase response curve (PRC) for green light shown above is roughly twelve hours out of phase with the PRC for oral melatonin administration. This preliminary study shows that low-intensity green light may be useful in the treatment of some chronobiologic disorders."
