sleep and learning

  1. why is sleep critical for learning through "memory consolidation"?
    • stabilization
    • integration
    • extraction
    • arriving at the gist
    • discovering the rules for the gist
  2. the importance of the hippocampus and memories
    where memories are stored/shipped to other regions for permanent keeping

    new memories are also stored here
  3. hypothesis for sleep and memory
    activation of the hippocampus during slow wave sleep (SWS) causes memory consolidation/learning
  4. to get evidence for hippocampal activation during SWS
    hippocampus reactivates during SWS for learning which leads to the increase in learning/memory
