Figuring out how late iPad-reading may affect your sleep

Participants will need to bring their own compatible iPad to the study (iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or iPad Pro) with the iOS update that includes Night Shift Mode.  On two of the four nights, they will use their iPads with different settings of the Night Shift mode, on one night they will wear orange goggles that block light, and on one night they will wear blue light goggles.

The study is aimed at figuring out how late iPad-reading may affect your sleep through the exposure of blue-light and the related melatonin production.

The study taking place at the LRC will be remunerated $40 for each night time session, totalling $160 for all four weeks.
