When Nobel laureate Otto Loewi discovered the chemical basis of neurotransmission in 1921, he attributed his experimental design to an insight he made during sleep.1 In recent years, scientific discoveries have begun to empirically validate the hypothetical role of sleep in cognitive processes such as insight formation and memory consolidation. Yet these new and important scientific findings—that sleep benefits cognition—have gained little attention in the debates over regulating resident work… Expand
Functional neuroimaging insights into how sleep and sleep deprivation affect memory and cognition
TLDR
The review summarizes current knowledge about what fMRI has revealed regarding the neurobehavioral correlates of sleep deprivation and sleep-dependent memory consolidation and provides substantial evidence that sleep is highly important for optimal cognitive function and learning. Expand
Memory consolidation during sleep: Interactive effects of sleep stages and HPA regulation
TLDR
It is shown that the different sleep stages and the concomitant glucocorticoid release are interactively involved in the consolidation of different types of memories and the importance of pituitary–adrenal inhibition during early SWS-rich sleep for efficient consolidation of declarative memory. Expand
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness and REM Sleep Behavior Disorders in Parkinson's Disease: A Narrative Review on Early Intervention With Implications to Neuroprotection
TLDR
Intervention studies in preclinical and early stages of α-synucleinopathies are needed to increase the understanding of the underlying pathomechanisms and may also provide important inroads to help clarify whether sleep disturbances are secondary to the neurodegenerative process or also contribute to disease exacerbation. Expand
Neuroimaging insights into insomnia
Insomnia is a frequent symptom or syndrome defmed by complaints of trouble in initiating or maintaining sleep or of nonrestorative sleep. This causes significant impairments in several areas ofExpand
Effect of Partial Sleep Deprivation on Neurocognitive Functions in Female Nursing Students: An observational study in India
TLDR
While total sleep deprivation is a useful model for studying the neurocognitive effects of sleep deprivation, it is a much less representative form of sleep loss than chronic partial sleep deprivation5. Expand
Sleep, anxiety and the effects on cognition
Poor sleep and high levels of anxiety have a detrimental effect on cognitive functioning. However, very little is known about what cognitive functions are affected by poor sleep or high levels ofExpand
Managing sleep and wakefulness in a 24-hour world
  • C. Coveney
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Sociology of health & illness
  • 2014
TLDR
Data draws on data, collected in the UK from 25 semi-structured interviews, to discuss the complex ways in which working patterns and social activities impact upon experiences and expectations of sleep in the authors' wired awake world. Expand
SLEEP ALTERATIONS IN MOUSE GENETIC MODELS OF HUMAN DISEASE
TLDR
This research investigated sleep-wake alterations in 5XFAD, a double transgenic mouse model of AD which displays an early onset of AD pathology and cognitive impairments and found that these mice have shorter bout lengths under baseline conditions, indicative of increased sleep fragmentation similar to the ones seen in human AD patients. Expand
Mediators of Physical Activity on Neurocognitive Function: A Review at Multiple Levels of Analysis
TLDR
The present review uses a more macroscopic lens to identify potential brain and behavioral/socioemotional mediators of the association between PA and cognitive function and discusses mechanisms at multiple levels of analysis to stimulate the field to examine both brain and Behavioral mediators. Expand
Sleep deprivation impairs contextual fear conditioning and attenuates subsequent behavioural, endocrine and neuronal responses
TLDR
In conclusion, brief SD impairs the consolidation of contextual fear memory and is reflected in a diminished behavioural freezing response, an attenuated HPA axis response and a reduction of the normal increase of phosphorylated CREB expression in the hippocampus and amygdala. Expand

Sleep inspires insight
TLDR
It is shown that sleep, by restructuring new memory representations, facilitates extraction of explicit knowledge and insightful behaviour in a process of insight. 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
Practice with Sleep Makes Perfect Sleep-Dependent Motor Skill Learning
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a night of sleep results in a 20% increase in motor speed without loss of accuracy, while an equivalent period of time during wake provides no significant benefit. Expand
Dissociable stages of human memory consolidation and reconsolidation
TLDR
The unique contributions of wake and sleep in the development of different forms of consolidation are described, and it is shown that waking reactivation can turn a previously consolidated memory back into a labile state requiring subsequent reconsolidation. Expand
Consolidation during sleep of perceptual learning of spoken language
TLDR
A role of sleep is shown in the consolidation of a naturalistic spoken-language learning task that produces generalization of phonological categories across different acoustic patterns, indicating that representations and mappings associated with generalization are refined and stabilized during sleep.

Effect of reducing interns' weekly work hours on sleep and attentional failures.
TLDR
Eliminating interns' extended work shifts in an intensive care unit significantly increased sleep and decreased attentional failures during night work hours. Expand
Visual discrimination learning requires sleep after training
TLDR
Findings that subjects show no improvement when retested the same day as training demonstrates that sleep within 30 hours of training is absolutely required for improved performance. Expand
Memory trace reactivation in hippocampal and neocortical neuronal ensembles
TLDR
Investigations have shown that during 'off-line' periods, traces of these experiences are spontaneously reactivated in hippocampal and neocortical neuronal activity, providing clues about the nature and mechanisms of memory retrieval and consolidation. Expand
Treatment, enhancement, and the ethics of neurotherapeutics
TLDR
The "enhancement" debate centers around a number of concerns and philosophical approaches to the proper role of medicine, therapeutics, and desirable human qualities in improving mental and neurological traits and skills in those with no identifiable pathology. Expand
Extended work shifts and the risk of motor vehicle crashes among interns.
TLDR
Extended-duration work shifts, which are currently sanctioned by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, pose safety hazards for interns and have implications for medical residency programs, which routinely schedule physicians to work more than 24 consecutive hours. Expand
