Can orange light help patients

A new treatment is being tested at an emergency psychiatric centre in Trondheim, where the windows and lamps are equipped with orange filters.

Can orange light therapy help people who have serious mental disorders? Who hear voices and see things that aren’t there? Or who are thinking about committing suicide?

“Emergency psychiatric care hasn’t seen much new thinking about treatment approaches. We’re trying to do something about that,” says Håvard Kallestad, a researcher in NTNU’s Department of Mental Health to ScinceNordic. He is part of a team that is integrating a special light treatment into the new emergency psychiatric centre at St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim.

AIC Student Paper Awards

The goal of the AIC Student Paper Awards scheme is to encourage students to present their work at the AIC meetings and to benefit from interaction with the international colour community.

Applications must be substantially related to the subject of colour, but may be based in any
discipline or mix of disciplines. Both research-based and practice-based work will be considered.

The AIC Student Paper Awards are for final-year undergraduates and post graduates only and will run every two years in conjunction with the AIC Interim Meetings. Accepted abstracts with a student being the first author will be eligible to be considered for the Awards. Only one accepted abstract from the same student first author will be considered.

Three prizes, agreed by the AIC Student Paper Awards Panel, will be awarded to students on the basis of the quality of their full papers published in the AIC proceedings. The top, first runner-up and second runner-up prizes will be awarded with a monetary prize.

An extended version of the awarded papers will be published in a special issue of
the JAIC. The awards will be announced and presented at the AIC Interim Meetings.
In addition to the three awarded papers three student papers in the same meeting will be invited to provide an extended version of the full paper for the special issue.

Further enquiries should be addressed to the Chairman of the AIC Student Paper Awards Panel professor Stephen Westland.
