Increased Sleep Fragmentation Leads to Impaired Off-Line Consolidation of Motor Memories in Humans

Abstract

A growing literature supports a role for sleep after training in long-term memory consolidation and enhancement. Consequently, interrupted sleep should result in cognitive deficits. Recent evidence from an animal study indeed showed that optimal memory consolidation during sleep requires a certain amount of uninterrupted sleep. Sleep continuity is disrupted… (More)
