The hippocampus produces growth hormone (GH) and contains GH receptors, suggesting a potential role for GH signaling in the regulation of hippocampal function. In agreement with this possibility, previous investigations have found altered hippocampal function and hippocampal-dependent learning and memory after chronic GH administration or deficiency.

Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep deprivation has previously been shown to interfere with normal learning and memory and to inhibit long-term potentiation (LTP) in vitro. Previous studies on REM sleep deprivation and LTP have relied on in vitro analysis in isolated brain slices taken from animals following several days of sleep deprivation. LTP in the(More)
