The specialized role that sleep-specific brain physiology plays in memory processing is being rapidly clarified with a greater understanding of the dynamic, complex, and exquisitely orchestrated brain state that emerges during sleep. Behaviorally, the facilitative role of non-REM (NREM) sleep (primarily slow wave sleep) for declarative but not procedural memory performance in humans has been demonstrated in a number of nocturnal sleep studies. However, subjects in these studies were tested… Expand
Slow wave sleep during a daytime nap is necessary for protection from subsequent interference and long-term retention
TLDR
It is the conclusion that SWS, obtained only by those in the 60-min nap group, served to actively facilitate the consolidation of learned bimodal paired-associates, supported by theories such as the Standard Theory of Consolidation as well as the Synaptic Homeostasis Hypothesis. Expand
The impact of sleep duration and subject intelligence on declarative and motor memory performance: how much is enough?
TLDR
While subject intelligence correlated positively with acquisition and retest performance on both tasks, it did not correlate with over‐sleep changes in performance on either task, suggesting that intelligence may not be a powerful modulator of sleep’s effect on memory performance. Expand
Declarative memory consolidation during the first night in a sleep lab: The role of REM sleep and cortisol
TLDR
The relationship between sleep stages, cortisol secretion and declarative memory performance in 27 healthy young men was examined and it was indicated that the overnight gain appears to be modulated by the extent of the FNE: a significant overnight improvement in memory performance was found only in subjects with a weak FNE. Expand
Daytime Naps, Motor Memory Consolidation and Regionally Specific Sleep Spindles
TLDR
It is demonstrated that motor memories are dynamically facilitated across daytime naps, enhancements that are uniquely associated with electrophysiological events expressed at local, anatomically discrete locations of the brain. Expand
The effect of daytime napping and full‐night sleep on the consolidation of declarative and procedural information
TLDR
It is indicated that daytime naps protect procedural memories from deterioration, whereas full‐night sleep improves performance, given behavioural and physiological differences between day and nighttime sleep. Expand
The role of daytime napping in declarative memory performance: a systematic review.
TLDR
This review has aimed at systematically compiling the results of studies which have examined the effects of napping on declarative memory performance in healthy adults including the involved mechanisms in memory reconsolidation, type ofDeclarative tasks, cross-gender differences, the role of age, duration of nap and its delayed onset. Expand
An ultra short episode of sleep is sufficient to promote declarative memory performance
TLDR
It is suggested that the mere onset of sleep may initiate active processes of consolidation which – once triggered – remain effective even if sleep is terminated shortly thereafter. Expand
Comparing the Effects of Sleep and Rest on Memory Consolidation
TLDR
This work assessed the extent to which sleep provides a unique memory benefit, above and beyond that conferred by quiet waking rest, across a 4-hr daytime training-retest interval. Expand
Sleep and rest facilitate implicit memory in a visual search task
TLDR
Results indicate that this form of hippocampal learning is independent of sleep, and vulnerable to proactive interference during active wake, and prompt a reevaluation of the hippocampal replay hypothesis as a general model of sleep-dependent learning. Expand
Complementary roles of slow-wave sleep and rapid eye movement sleep in emotional memory consolidation.
TLDR
These findings provide physiological support for sequential views of sleep-dependent memory processing and extend those ideas to emotional memory by showing that, once selectively reorganized away from the hippocampus during SWS, emotionally aversive representations undergo a comparably targeted process during subsequent REM.

TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that the length of the NREM-REM sleep cycle may be important for declarative memory and that stage 2 sleep may be involved with the memory for motor procedural but not cognitive procedural tasks. Expand
Memory Consolidation in Sleep Dream or Reality
TLDR
There is no compelling evidence to support a relationship between sleep and memory consolidation and it is suggested that consolidation or enhancement, initiated in waking with task acquisition, could in some instances extend to sleep, but sleep would serve no unique role in these processes. Expand
Emotional memory formation is enhanced across sleep intervals with high amounts of rapid eye movement sleep.
TLDR
Results are consonant with a supportive function of REM sleep predominating late sleep for the formation of emotional memory in humans, and particularly enhanced memory for emotional texts. Expand
Sleep-dependent learning: a nap is as good as a night
TLDR
It is reported that sleep-dependent learning of a texture discrimination task can be accomplished in humans by brief naps containing both slow-wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Expand
Dependence on REM sleep of overnight improvement of a perceptual skill.
TLDR
Performance of a basic visual discrimination task improved after a normal night's sleep, indicating that a process of human memory consolidation, active during sleep, is strongly dependent on REM sleep. Expand
Effects of Early and Late Nocturnal Sleep on Declarative and Procedural Memory
TLDR
The experiments for the first time dissociate specific effects of early and late sleep on two principal types of memory, declarative and procedural, in humans, and the benefit from sleep on recall depended on the phase of sleep and on the type of memory. Expand
The REM Sleep-Memory Consolidation Hypothesis
TLDR
The evidence for the hypothesis that REM (rapid eye movement) sleep has an important role in memory consolidation is reviewed and found to be weak and contradictory. Expand
Effects of early and late nocturnal sleep on priming and spatial memory.
TLDR
It appears that earlySleep dominated by SWS facilitates consolidation of declarative memory whereas late sleep dominated by REM sleep facilitates consolidationof nondeclarativeMemory. Expand
Morning recall of verbal material depends on prior sleep organization
TLDR
The hypothesis that sleep organization, i.e. the regular occurrence of NREM-REM cycles more than sleep states per se, may be crucial for the retention of verbal material presented before sleep is put forward. Expand

TLDR
Increasing central nervous cholinergic activation during SWS-rich sleep by posttrial infusion of 0.75 mg of the cholinesterase inhibitor physostigmine completely blocked SWs-related consolidation of declarative memories for word pairs in human subjects, in line with predictions that a low Cholinergic tone duringSWS is essential forDeclarative memory consolidation.
