A new study links poor sleep quality in older adults with elevated levels of tau, a protein associated with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report poor sleep quality later in life may be associated with declining brain health and may be an early indicator of Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reveals how tactile experiences are encoded in the brain as we sleep.
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.
A new study sheds additional light on how the brain consolidates memory during sleep. Researchers report rapid fluctuations in gamma band activity in the hippocampus during nREM sleep helps facilitate memory reactivation.
A new study MEG study reveals our ability to learn during slow wave sleep is limited.
A new study shows how a three step brain oscillation plays an important role in memory consolidation.
Researchers have discovered a brain circuit that governs how certain memories are consolidated in the brain during sleep.
A new study could be the first step to understanding the biochemistry that controls the switch from sleep to wakefulness, researchers believe.
