A new study suggests that limited sunlight can impact thinking in people with depression.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A new study suggests that limited sunlight can have an impact on the cognitive functions of individuals dealing with depression. As reported by Reuters, University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers examined the relationship between weather data and the tests results of over 14,000 middle to late aged adults pertaining to a study on risk factors for stroke.
As noted by Reuters, those dealing with depression, and from areas with generally less sun exposure were more likely to be faced with cognitive impairments as shown by lower scores. The cognition of individuals who were not depressed did not seem to be affected by limited or more sunshine.
More about the study may be available in the Environmental Health journal online.
