The cytokine IL‐6 has been considered to exert neuromodulating influences on the brain, with promoting influences on sleep. Sleep enhances the consolidation of memories, and, in particular, late nocturnal sleep also represents a period of enhanced IL‐6 signaling, due to a distinctly enhanced availability of soluble IL‐6 receptors during this period, enabling trans‐signaling of IL‐6 to neurons. Thus, a contribution of IL‐6 to sleep‐dependent memory consolidation is hypothesized. To test this… 
Sleep smart—optimizing sleep for declarative learning and memory
TLDR
This review briefly introduces the basic concepts and central findings of the research on sleep and memory, and discusses implications of this lab-based work for everyday applications to make the best possible use of sleep's beneficial effect on learning and memory.
Sleep-dependent enhancement of emotional memory in early childhood
TLDR
The results suggest that sleep bouts can interact to benefit memory in early childhood and suggest that REM sleep is necessary for consolidation of memories with emotional valence.
A Role for Central Nervous Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone Signaling in the Consolidation of Declarative Memories
TLDR
It is indicated that intranasally administered growth hormone releasing-hormone, by counteracting endogenous GHRH release, impairs hippocampal memory processing, providing first evidence for a critical contribution of central nervous somatotropic activity to hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation.
The role of sleep and sleep deprivation in consolidating fear memories
Can Slow-Wave Sleep Enhancement Improve Memory? A Review of Current Approaches and Cognitive Outcomes
TLDR
Each stimulation method could enhance slow-wave power and/or SWS duration in human subjects and there is some evidence that so-tDCS can also improve certain cognitive outcomes in clinical populations.
Interactive effects of stress reactivity and rapid eye movement sleep theta activity on emotional memory formation.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that elevated stress at encoding, and accompanying changes in neuromodulators such as cortisol, may interact with theta activity during REM sleep to promote selective consolidation of emotional information.
The role of interleukin-6 signaling in nervous tissue.
Sleep for cognitive enhancement
TLDR
The enhancing potential of sleep is discussed, mainly focusing on the domain of learning and memory, by discussing different methodological caveats and ethical issues that should be considered when thinking about using sleep for cognitive enhancement in everyday applications.

Interleukin‐6: a cytokine to forget
TLDR
Blockade of endogenous IL‐6 by application of a neutralizing anti‐IL6 antibody 90 min after tetanus caused a remarkable prolongation of LTP, and implicate IL‐ 6 in the mechanisms controlling the kinetics and amount of information storage.

TLDR
The selective increase in sIL‐6R implicates an enhanced trans‐signaling capacity whereby sleep distinctly widens the profile of IL‐6 actions, enabling an integrated influence on brain and peripheral organs.
Humoral Links between Sleep and the Immune System
TLDR
It is reached the tentative conclusion that the sleep‐promoting actions of IL‐1 and GHRH are mediated via anterior hypothalamic neurons that are receptive to these substances, and it seems likely that TNF‐α and CRH also influence these neurons.

TLDR
The data suggest that IL‐6 plays an important role in the regulation of body temperature, general activity, and food intake in sick animals and it is shown for the first time that it is possible to potentiate the effects of a mediator in vivo by administration of the correspond‐ing receptor.
Acute effects of recombinant human interleukin-6 on endocrine and central nervous sleep functions in healthy men.
TLDR
The results underscore the importance of IL-6 in the cascade of cytokines for the neuroendocrine response during the acute phase reaction and appear to be involved in changes of sleep and behavior accompanying infection and inflammatory disorders.
Brain-immune interactions in sleep.
IL-6 and Its Circadian Secretion in Humans
TLDR
IL-6 is a mediator of sleepiness and its circadian pattern reflects the homeostatic drive for sleep, and appears to be somnogenic in rats.
Learning-Dependent Increases in Sleep Spindle Density
TLDR
Results indicate that spindle activity during non-REM sleep is sensitive to previous learning experience, and spindle density was correlated to recall performance both before and after sleep.
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.
