There is compelling evidence that sleep contributes to the long-term consolidation of new memories. This function of sleep has been linked to slow (<1 Hz) potential oscillations, which predominantly arise from the prefrontal neocortex and characterize slow wave sleep. However, oscillations in brain potentials are commonly considered to be mere epiphenomena that reflect synchronized activity arising from neuronal networks, which links the membrane and synaptic processes of these neurons in time… Expand
Sleep Oscillations in the Thalamocortical System Induce Long-Term Neuronal Plasticity
TLDR
The results suggest that long-term potentiation occurs during slow-wave sleep, supporting its contribution to memory. Expand
Transcranial Slow Oscillation Stimulation During Sleep Enhances Memory Consolidation in Rats
TLDR
The hypothesis that slowly oscillating electric fields causal affect sleep dependent memory consolidation is supported, and oscillatory tDCS can be a valuable tool to investigate the function of endogenous cortical network activity is demonstrated. Expand

Slow-wave sleep : generation and propagation of slow waves, role in long-term plasticity and gating
TLDR
It is shown that no neuronal firing occurs in the neocortex during silent states of slow-wave sleep but some synaptic activities might be observed prior to the onset of active states, which was in agreement with the hypothesis. Expand

TLDR
A central role for consolidating memories is played by the slow oscillation, that is, the oscillating field potential change dominating SWS, which synchronizes the occurrence of sharp wave ripples accompanying memory reactivations in the hippocampus with thalamocortical spindle activity. Expand
Synaptic Mechanisms of Memory Consolidation during Sleep Slow Oscillations
TLDR
It is reported that interaction between slow cortical oscillations and synaptic plasticity during deep sleep can underlie mapping hippocampal memory traces to persistent cortical representation. Expand
Slow oscillations orchestrating fast oscillations and memory consolidation.
TLDR
This work proposes that memory consolidation during SWS represents a process of system consolidation which is orchestrated by the neocortical <1Hz electroencephalogram (EEG) slow oscillation and involves the reactivation of newly encoded representations and their subsequent redistribution from temporary hippocampal to neocorticals long-term storage sites.

Triggering sleep slow waves by transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
TMS triggering of slow waves reveals intrinsic bistability in thalamocortical networks during non-rapid eye movement sleep and leads to a deepening of sleep and to an increase in EEG slow-wave activity, which is thought to play a role in brain restoration and memory consolidation. Expand
Mechanisms of systems memory consolidation during sleep
TLDR
This review provides a concise overview of how the sleeping brain transforms and builds persisting memories through this process, highlighting hippocampal replay that captures episodic memory aspects and brain oscillations hallmarking slow-wave and rapid-eye movement sleep. Expand
Neural oscillations during non‐rapid eye movement sleep as biomarkers of circuit dysfunction in schizophrenia
TLDR
The evidence for disrupted slow, spindle and ripple oscillations in schizophrenia is reviewed, linking pathophysiological mechanisms to the functional impact of these neurophysiological changes and drawing links with the cognitive symptoms that accompany this condition. Expand

TLDR
Far from being epiphenomena, with no functional role, NREM sleep oscillations, particularly spindles and their experimental model augmenting responses, produce synaptic plasticity in target cortical neurons and resonant activity in corticothalamic loops, as in "memory" processes. Expand
Declarative memory consolidation: mechanisms acting during human sleep.
TLDR
It is shown that declarative memory benefits mainly from sleep periods dominated by SWS, whereas there is no consistent benefit of this memory from periods rich in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Expand
Hippocampal sharp wave-ripples linked to slow oscillations in rat slow-wave sleep.
TLDR
Results support the notion that the depolarizing surface-positive phase of the slow oscillation and the associated up state of prefrontal excitation promotes hippocampal SPWs via efferent pathways. Expand
Neuronal Plasticity in Thalamocortical Networks during Sleep and Waking Oscillations
TLDR
Recordings from thalamic and related cortical neurons in vivo suggest that, far from being a quiescent state during which the cortex and subcortical structures are globally inhibited, slow-wave sleep may consolidate memory traces acquired during wakefulness in corticothalamic networks. Expand
Pattern-Specific Associative Long-Term Potentiation Induced by a Sleep Spindle-Related Spike Train
TLDR
The results show that spindle-associated spike discharges are efficient in modifying excitatory neocortical synapses according to a Hebbian rule, in support of a role for sleep spindles in memory consolidation. Expand

The findings identify the depolarizing phase of the slow oscillations in humans as a time period particularly relevant for a reprocessing of memories in sleep. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that sleep patterns in the limbic system are essential for the preservation of experience-induced synaptic modifications, and the subcortical effects of hippocampal sharp wave bursts may be critical in the release of various hormones which, in turn, may affect synaptic plasticity. Expand
Local sleep and learning
TLDR
It is shown that sleep homeostasis indeed has a local component, which can be triggered by a learning task involving specific brain regions, and that the local increase in SWA after learning correlates with improved performance of the task after sleep. Expand
Extracellular calcium fluctuations and intracellular potentials in the cortex during the slow sleep oscillation.
TLDR
The periods of silence occurring in the cortical network during slow wave sleep are promoted by recurrent [Ca](out) depletions, and a decrease in the extracellular calcium concentration is reported. Expand
Hippocampal Slow Oscillation: A Novel EEG State and Its Coordination with Ongoing Neocortical Activity
TLDR
A novel state present during deactivated stages of sleep and anesthesia that is characterized by a prominent large-amplitude and slow frequency (≤1 Hz) rhythm is described, called the hippocampal slow oscillation (SO), which may present a favorable milieu for synchronization-dependent synaptic plasticity within and between hippocampal and neocortical ensembles.
