Shining a light in your ear 'can brighten your mood in winter'
阳光照入耳朵“可照亮你冬日心情”

As the nights get longer, those who suffer from the winter blues will be planning ways to escape to the sunshine.
随着夜晚的时间越来越差,那些冬日抑郁者们也开始计划如何多晒点日光了。

But there may be a much simpler way of cheering yourself up... simply shining a bright light into your ear canal.
但要想心情好些可能还有更简单的办法……往耳洞里照点亮光就行了。

Up to one in four Britons suffer from seasonal affective disorder, with seven per cent of the population having full-blown SAD.
每四个英国人中就有一人有季节性情绪失调症,人口总数中有7%都有严重症状。

Ear's an idea: The effects of seasonal affective disorder could be combated by channeling light to the brain down the ear duct

It is caused by the brain not receiving enough daylight which is needed to trigger serotonin, a hormone that regulates mood. Symptoms range from mild lethargy to depression and insomnia, but a cure might be in sight.
这种症状是由于日光不足,大脑不能生成调节情绪所必需的激素羟色胺。结果就是轻度嗜睡、抑郁、失眠等,而且没有治愈的可能。

Two clinical trials, run by Valkee - who make a device that can shine light into your ear - and the University of Oulu in Finland,  have found that carefully targeted light can help prevent the condition.
通过两项Valkee公司(一制造了往耳洞里照光的器械的公司)与芬兰奥卢大学联合进行的临床试验,专家发现这种局部晒光的办法确实可以帮助预防病情。

Juuso Nissil?, Valkee's co-founder and chief scientist said: 'We presented earlier that the human brain is sensitive to light.
Valkee公司的联合创始人与首席科学家Juuso Nissil?说:“我们之前就介绍过,人脑对光线是非常敏感的。”

'These two clinical trials demonstrate that channeling bright light via ear canal into brain's photosensitive areas effectively prevents and treats seasonal affective disorder.'
“这两项临床试验更证明通过耳洞进入的亮光可以影响大脑的感光区,有效地预防以及治疗季节性情绪失调症。”

An iPod that emits light: Valkee launched its ?185 headset in August 2010. It is classed as a medical device under EU regulations

The University of Oulu reported that in their first study, 92 per cent of the patients with seasonal affective disorder achieved full remission after a month of daily eight-to-12 minute doses of light from the Valkee.
奥鲁大学也发表报告称其第一次研究中,经过每日8到12分钟的Valkee照耳,一个月后有92%的的季节性情绪失调症患者都全面缓解。

Valkee launched its bright-light headset in August 2010. It is classed as a medical device under EU regulations.
Valkee公司是在2010年8月推出这种亮光耳机的,属于符合欧盟规定的医疗器械。

The device channels bright light direct to the brain via the ear canal to prevent and cure depression, mood swings and even circadian-rhythm disorders such as jetlag.
这一器材可以通过耳道直接将光线照入大脑,以帮助治疗抑郁症、情绪波动甚至比如因时差而导致的昼夜失调。

It costs ?185 and looks like an iPod - only the earphones emit light rather than sound.
这一要价185英镑的器械外形酷似iPod,只不过其耳机只能发射亮光而不是音乐。
