SCN will order the body to release the hormone melatonin when it going dark at night. Furthermore, the hormone melatonin will order the body to rest.
But with the presence of an electric lamp that makes the atmosphere at night as a light, block the issuance of the hormone melatonin, so currently the human sleep more late than before.
Our bodies are adaptable. For example, for workers who work at night, SCN will order to produces of hormone melatonin slowly, so they will stay awake even though it was dark.
At the night we will be more likely to feel sleepy, due to the hormone melatonin is produced increased and also drop in body temperature and blood pressure in the body.
