Even tho' humans apparently don't have a pineal gland that responds to light
directly, they are very succeptible to low light levels and the depression
that that induces in some people.  One treatment for winter depression
in the far north (where light levels can be really low!!) is to use
full spectrum light at high intensities for several hours a day.  "Cabin
fever" is a common effect from lack of light in the natural spectrum.
