I didn't know if this was a General Aviation question, or a Tech-Ops Question, so if the moderators feel that this is a tech question, please move it. Thanks
Now, I was viewing the cabin interior pic of the MESABA AIRLINES CRJ-900ER Next Gen, and Of course, it looks different than the others, but I was wondering what these are on the ceiling? They look like Emergency Lights, but I am not for certain. Can anybody help me out here?

Quoting EMBQA (Reply 4): Cabin call lights... it lets the FA know from which group of seats it came from. The old way was to go looking for the call button. This will put them within a few rows.
That seems a little farfetched. Why change the current system when it takes you directly to the row AND cluster of seats that called, instead of having to look within a few rows, and several clusters? I agree, I think it is for rope licorice
Today I checked on the E190 and they have lights in the overhead that light up when the cabin call light is pressed. In this case it may be 'mood lighting'.. but I'll bet it may be tied into the cabin call lights as well. I have also seen several other aircraft that use a simular system
