The time interval between awakening and training equally affects the rate of acquisition of sequence order, a declarative component, and the kinematic optimization process, an implicit component; 2. Sleep enhances the retention of both these aspects of sequence learning. DESIGN For(More)
HYPOTHESIS Unilateral conductive hearing loss (HL) causes measurable disability in realistic hearing environments. The benefits of improving this loss depend both on the absolute level of final hearing and on hearing asymmetry. BACKGROUND Surgical success is often measured by the degree of change in the air-bone gap or in the air thresholds. The Glasgow(More)
