May I suggest getting in touch with Dr Drew Dawson at Adelaide
University, or Dr Leon Lack at Flinder's [both in South
Australia]. Both have done work in this field, and both Leon's
and Drew's work in entraining methods have been fruitful in
treating SAD.

I'm sorry I don't have an internet address for either, but they
would be a good place to start in any citation /abstract search.
