Sounds presented during sleep associated with previously learned stimuli reactivated memory and improved memory storage.
Learning consolidation that occurs during sleep is a result of the learning process, and is not simply due to neural processes and brain regions associated with learning.
Study reveals how the CA2 region of the hippocampus plays a key role in long-term memory consolidation.
53% of dreams can be traced to memories, and of those, 50% are linked to memory sources of multiple previous life events. Additionally, 26% of dreams are associated with impending events. Future-orientated dreams become more prevalent during deeper stages of sleep.
The reactivation of learned material during slow oscillation/sleep spindle complexes, and the precision of SO-spindle coupling predicts how strong a memory will be reactivated in the brain.
Novel experiences dampen previous memory representations in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, facilitating flexible strategy encoding in mice.
Adult born neurons are essential for synaptic structural remodeling and memory consolidation during REM sleep, a new mouse study found.
Delivering a memory-inducing scent to one nostril while a person sleeps helps boost memory retention.
