Sleep is critical for regulation of synaptic efficacy, consolidation of memories and learning. It has been proposed that synaptic plasticity associated with sleep rhythms could contribute to consolidation of memories acquired during wakefulness. It was suggested that in the active state of sleep slow wave oscillation, the hippocampal formation activates… CONTINUE READING
