Response to De La Iglesia et al
We wish to respond to the commentary of de la Iglesia et al. . Studies comparing sleep in different communities have different goals. One frequent goal has been to determine how sleep is affected by manipulating specific ‘modern’ conditions. Many studies have investigated the effect of artificial light and electronic entertainment. Such studies have clearly shown that light, particularly blue light, delays sleep onset . Studying the effect of artificial light on sleep was not a goal of our study.
