This is a good point - to test only what varies the most

I've also read studies on intraocular lenses that suggested that the humans eye sensitivity to light changes with age.

comment Why do we feel tired if we sleep excessively?
People sleep in ~90minute long sleep cycles. Technically, if you decide to "sleep in" by 30-50 minutes, you may start the next sleep cycle and feel worse awakening from that. The logic behind this is that you wake up from deeper sleep. I don't know if there is hard science to back this up though

comment What kinds of arousal can a human brain experience?
Thanks! The way I can clarify the question is - exposure to a new arousing stimuli (ex: new sexy female) stimulates release of dopamine in response to the stimuli. I'm interested if there are other neuromodulators that are elevated or lowered in response to stimuli.
