Mounting behavioral evidence in humans supports the claim that sleep leads to improvements in recently acquired, nondeclarative memories. Examples include motor-sequence learning; visual-discrimination learning; and perceptual learning of a synthetic language. In contrast, there are limited human data supporting a benefit of sleep for declarative (hippocampus-mediated) memory in humans (for review, see). This is particularly surprising given that animal models (e.g.,) and neuroimaging studies… Expand
The contribution of sleep to hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation
There is now compelling evidence that sleep promotes the long-term consolidation of declarative and procedural memories. Behavioral studies suggest that sleep preferentially consolidates explicitExpand
The Modulation of Memory by Sleep
As critical as waking brain function is to cognition, an extensive literature now indicates that sleep supports equally important, different, yet complementary operations. This article will considerExpand
Sleep selectively enhances hippocampus-dependent memory in mice.
TLDR
Findings provide direct evidence of a role for sleep in enhancing hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation in rodents and detail a novel paradigm for examining sleep-induced memory effects. Expand
The Sleeping Brain's Influence on Verbal Memory: Boosting Resistance to Interference
TLDR
By introducing interference after sleep, this study confirms an experimental paradigm that demonstrates the active role of sleep in consolidating memory, and unmasks the large magnitude of that benefit. Expand
A deficit in the ability to form new human memories without sleep
TLDR
It appears that sleep before learning is critical in preparing the human brain for next-day memory formation—a worrying finding considering society's increasing erosion of sleep time. Expand
Sleep-Dependent Facilitation of Episodic Memory Details
TLDR
It is suggested that sleep may preferentially benefit contextual aspects of memory, supported by sleep-spindle oscillations, and that the temporal order of initial learning differentially determines subsequent offline consolidation. Expand
Sleep-dependent memory consolidation – What can be learnt from children?
TLDR
Findings indicate a major role of slow wave sleep (SWS) for processes of memory consolidation during early development, and that studies of ADHD children point toward an essential contribution of prefrontal cortex to the preferential consolidation of declarative memory during SWS. Expand
Sleep and Memory Consolidation
A wealth of behavioral evidence suggests that performance improves more following intervals containing wake compared to intervals containing sleep. This sleep benefit reflects the consolidation ofExpand
Evidence for sleep-dependent memory consolidation in humans and mice
Sleep has been implicated as playing an important role in memory consolidation. Considerable indirect evidence suggests a role for sleep in hippocampus-dependent memory in rodents. Hippocampal placeExpand
Hippocampal Contributions to Declarative Memory Consolidation During Sleep
The human brain faces a fundamental information storage challenge—forming useful new memories while not over-writing important old ones. Memory consolidation, and the corresponding interplay betweenExpand

TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that the length of the NREM-REM sleep cycle may be important for declarative memory and that stage 2 sleep may be involved with the memory for motor procedural but not cognitive procedural tasks. Expand

TLDR
Increasing central nervous cholinergic activation during SWS-rich sleep by posttrial infusion of 0.75 mg of the cholinesterase inhibitor physostigmine completely blocked SWs-related consolidation of declarative memories for word pairs in human subjects, in line with predictions that a low Cholinergic tone duringSWS is essential forDeclarative memory consolidation.

Are Spatial Memories Strengthened in the Human Hippocampus during Slow Wave Sleep?
TLDR
It is shown that, in humans, hippocampal areas that are activated during route learning in a virtual town are likewise activated during subsequent slow wave sleep, and that the amount of hippocampal activity expressed during slow waveSleep positively correlates with the improvement of performance in route retrieval on the next day. Expand
Sleep-dependent memory consolidation
TLDR
Converging evidence, from the molecular to the phenomenological, leaves little doubt that offline memory reprocessing during sleep is an important component of how the authors' memories are formed and ultimately shaped. Expand
Consolidation during sleep of perceptual learning of spoken language
TLDR
A role of sleep is shown in the consolidation of a naturalistic spoken-language learning task that produces generalization of phonological categories across different acoustic patterns, indicating that representations and mappings associated with generalization are refined and stabilized during sleep. Expand
Memory reprocessing in corticocortical and hippocampocortical neuronal ensembles.
TLDR
Hippocampal cells that fire together during behaviour exhibit enhanced activity correlations during subsequent sleep, with some preservation of temporal order information, and traces of recent experience are re-expressed in both hippocampal and neocortical circuits during sleep. Expand
Methods for reducing interference in the Complementary Learning Systems model: Oscillating inhibition and autonomous memory rehearsal
TLDR
This paper critically evaluates how well the Complementary Learning Systems theory of hippocampo-cortical interactions addresses the stability-plasticity problem and describes a recently developed learning algorithm that leverages neural oscillations to find weak parts of memories and strong competitors and can prevent catastrophic interference in an AB-AC learning paradigm. Expand
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. Expand
Effects of Early and Late Nocturnal Sleep on Declarative and Procedural Memory
TLDR
The experiments for the first time dissociate specific effects of early and late sleep on two principal types of memory, declarative and procedural, in humans, and the benefit from sleep on recall depended on the phase of sleep and on the type of memory. Expand
Conjunctive representations in learning and memory: principles of cortical and hippocampal function.
TLDR
This framework suggests that tasks involving rapid, incidental conjunctive learning are better tests of hippocampal function, and is implemented in a computational neural network model that can account for a wide range of data in animal learning. Expand
