Sleep and smartphones: The chemistry that keeps you awake -- video
Date:5/20/2014

WASHINGTON, May 19, 2014 The smartphones and tablets millions of us use every day may also keep us awake. In the American Chemical Society's (ACS') latest Reactions video, find out how the light emitted from those devices triggers a chemical reaction that tells our brains to rise-and-shine, rather than snooze. The video is available at http://youtu.be/mnDfPpUC_jg.
