The function of rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep is still unknown. One prevailing hypothesis suggests that REM sleep is important in processing memory traces. Here, using positron emission tomography (PET) and regional cerebral blood flow measurements, we show that waking experience influences regional brain activity during subsequent sleep. Several brain areas activated during the execution of a serial reaction time task during wakefulness were significantly more active during REM sleep in… 
Functional neuroimaging of the reciprocal influences between sleep and wakefulness
TLDR
Evidence is provided that in humans, regional brain activity during wakefulness is influenced by sleep regulation, namely by the interaction between sleep homeostasis and circadian signals and the dynamic interactions by which the succession of vigilance states support normal brain function and human cognition.
Reactivation of Motor-Related Gamma Activity in Human NREM Sleep
TLDR
Electrophysiological support for the reoccurrence in NREM sleep of the neural activity related to previous waking experience is provided, i.e. that a basic tenet of the reactivation theory does occur in human sleep.
Are Spatial Memories Strengthened in the Human Hippocampus during Slow Wave Sleep?
Off-line processing of memory traces during human sleep: Contribution of functional neuroimaging
TLDR
The results suggest an off-line processing of recent memory traces during sleep, which is related to the processing of high-level material and to be modulated by the amount of learning achieved during the training session.
The cognitive neuroscience of sleep: neuronal systems, consciousness and learning
TLDR
This work discusses neuronal-network and regional forebrain activity during sleep, and its consequences for consciousness and cognition, and indicates possible roles for sleep in neuroplasticity.

Brain gene expression during REM sleep depends on prior waking experience.
TLDR
Brain expression of the plasticity-associated immediate-early gene zif-268 is studied during SW and REM sleep in rats exposed to rich sensorimotor experience in the preceding waking period to suggest a window of increased neuronal plasticity during REM sleep that follows enriched waking experience.
Functional neuroanatomy of human rapid-eye-movement sleep and dreaming
TLDR
A group study of seven subjects who maintained steady REM sleep during brain scanning and recalled dreams upon awakening shows that regional cerebral blood flow is positively correlated with REM sleep in pontine tegmentum, left thalamus, both amygdaloid complexes, anterior cingulate cortex and right parietal operculum.
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.
Sleep states and memory processes
Functional Neuroanatomy of Human Slow Wave Sleep
TLDR
The results show that rCBF is decreased more in some cortical areas (especially in orbitofrontal cortex) than in the rest of the cortex, and it is hypothesize that cellular processes taking place during SWS might be modulated differently in these regions.
Replay of Neuronal Firing Sequences in Rat Hippocampus During Sleep Following Spatial Experience
TLDR
The correlated activity of rat hippocampal pyramidal cells during sleep reflects the activity of those cells during earlier spatial exploration and this memory for temporal order of neuronal firing could be produced by an interaction between the temporal integration properties of long-term potentiation and the phase shifting of spike activity with respect to the hippocampal theta rhythm.
Reactivation of hippocampal ensemble memories during sleep.
TLDR
Recordings from large ensembles of hippocampal "place cells" in three rats showed that cells that fired together when the animal occupied particular locations in the environment exhibited an increased tendency to fire together during subsequent sleep, in comparison to sleep episodes preceding the behavioral tasks.
