The role of REM sleep theta activity in emotional memory
TLDR
It is proposed that REM sleep mediates the prioritized processing of emotional memories within the hippocampus, the integration of previously consolidated memory traces within the neocortex, as well as the disengagement of consolidated neocortical memory traces from the hippocampus.
Hippocampal Sleep Features: Relations to Human Memory Function
TLDR
More detailed electrophysiological investigations assessing the specific relations between different types of memory consolidation and hippocampal EEG features are in order, to add an important piece of knowledge to the elucidation of the ultimate sleep function.
Rapid eye movement sleep patterns of brain activation and deactivation occur within unique functional networks
TLDR
It is shown that regional activation and deactivation patterns of REM sleep tend to occur in distinct functional connectivity networks that are present during wakefulness, providing insights regarding the differential contributions of brain regions to the distinct subjective experiences that occur during REM sleep (dreaming) relative to wakefulness.
Sleep in the Human Hippocampus: A Stereo-EEG Study
TLDR
The data imply that cortical slow oscillation is attenuated in the hippocampal structures during NREM sleep, suggesting that this state of resonance may have a supportive role for the processing/consolidation of memory.

Sleep-Dependent Hippocampal Slow Activity Correlates with Waking Memory Performance in Humans
TLDR
It is concluded that the pHip-Hip structures' capacity of producing high amplitude and synchronized slow (< 1 Hz) oscillation during deep NREM sleep is related to the functional power of these structures.
Rhythmic hippocampal slow oscillation characterizes REM sleep in humans
TLDR
It is suggested that this oscillation is the counterpart of the hippocampal theta of mammalian REM sleep, and that the 1.5–3‐Hz delta EEG activity is a basic neurophysiological feature of human REM sleep.
Sleep-Dependent θ Oscillations in the Human Hippocampus and Neocortex
TLDR
The findings suggest that the generation mechanisms of θ oscillations in humans might have evolved from tonic to phasic in hippocampus during REM sleep and extended from hippocampus to cortex, where they appear in certain wakefulness-related states.
Human thalamic medial pulvinar nucleus is not activated during paradoxical sleep.
TLDR
Using intracranial recordings in epileptic patients, the presence of unexpected delta frequency oscillations, as well as a surprisingly low amount of high-frequency activities, in a posterior region of the thalamus, the medial pulvinar nucleus (PuM), suggests some differences in processing and/or integration of brain activities during waking and PS.
Reduced Alpha power associated with the recall of mentation from Stage 2 and Stage REM sleep.
TLDR
The hypothesized that Alpha power decreases during both Stage 2 and REM sleep would index the presence of sleep mentation in these stages, and the Delta effect is consistent with prior observations of regular linkages between Alpha and Delta power during sleep.
