A new study reports on a link between lack of restorative sleep and an accumulation of amyloid beta.
Researchers have created a new model that may help explain how different sleep patterns may help us to solve problems. The study reveals non-REM sleep helps us categorize information, where as REM sleep helps us to draw unexpected connections between information we have been exposed to.
Using optogenetics to dampen delta waves of rats during sleep resulted in weaker memory reactivation and promoted forgetting. The findings could have significant implications for treating PTSD in humans.
Contrary to a popular theory, researchers discover the brain remains connected during non-REM sleep. The study reports not all forms of communication within the cerebral cortex are disrupted during this sleep phase.
Researchers report the size of the pupil fluctuates during sleep. The findings may indicate that pupil size can indicate specific sleep states.
Study reveals how motor memory is consolidated during sleep.
Researchers report transcranial alternating current stimulation applied during sleep can help accelerate learning, memory and skill acquisition.
Sleep may be regulated by inflammasome NLRP3, researchers report.
According to UCSF researchers, during non-REM sleep, newly learned useful neural patterns are replayed and recapped.
