The relationship of sleep states to memory processing or consolidation has been of interest for at least 100 years. Advances in the understanding of the nature of sleep states and of memory processes at the electrophysiological, neurophysiological, biochemical, and behavioral levels have provided invaluable information to help us understand a very important and practical relationship. The idea of permanent memory formation as a neurophysiological and neurochemical set of processes occurring… CONTINUE READING
