Scientists are now finding that light acts on individuals through multiple pathways, most
notably the optic nerve that links to the brain's visual cortex, providing a pathway for the visual effects of light. The optic nerve also links to the more recently discovered retinohypothalamic tract, providing a pathway for the nonvisual effects of light. However, specific effects have not yet been widely evaluated clinically, especially in relationship to chromotherapy (ie, therapy based on colored light).

Disgust → feeling something is wrong or nasty. Strong disapproval.
