Sleep benefits subsequent hippocampal functioning
TLDR
It is found that even a mild sleep disruption that suppressed slow-wave activity and induced shallow sleep, but did not reduce total sleep time, was sufficient to affect subsequent successful encoding-related hippocampal activation and memory performance in healthy human subjects.
Mispredicting Affective and Behavioral Responses to Racism
TLDR
Although people predicted that they would be very upset by a racist act, when people actually experienced this event they showed relatively little emotional distress, suggesting that racism may persevere in part because people who anticipate feeling upset and believe that they will take action may actually respond with indifference when faced with an act of racism.

Can Playing the Computer Game “Tetris” Reduce the Build-Up of Flashbacks for Trauma? A Proposal from Cognitive Science
TLDR
Playing “Tetris” half an hour after viewing trauma would reduce flashback frequency over 1-week, and this has implications for a novel avenue of preventative treatment development, much-needed as a crisis intervention for the aftermath of traumatic events.
