The notion that dreaming might alter the strength of associative links in memory was first proposed almost 200 years ago. But no strong evidence of such altered associative links has been obtained. Semantic priming can be used to quantify the strength of associative links between pairs of words; it is thought to measure the automatic spread of activation from a node representing one word to nodes representing semantically related words. Semantic priming could thus be used to test for global… Expand
Effects of sleep-wake states on reaction times and priming effects in a semantic priming paradigm
Recently, Stickgold et al. (1999) demonstrated that subjects awakened from REM sleep showed a greater priming effect by weak primes than by strong primes, which is in contrast to the normal patternExpand

We have all experienced the bizarre and visually complex dreams that have been correlated with REM sleep. However, little is know about how the physiology of REM sleep produces the changes in mentalExpand
The role of sleep and dreaming in the processing of episodic memory
While a substantial body of evidence links slow wave sleep (SWS) to the processing of declarative memory, a small but growing number of studies indicate a role for rapid eye movement (REM) sleep inExpand
Does Sleep Promote False Memories?
TLDR
It is observed that during encoding, hippocampal responses were selectively larger for items subsequently accurately retrieved than for material leading to illusory memories, which indicates that the early organization of memory during encoding is a major factor influencing subsequent production of accurate or false memories.

The role of sleep in changing our minds: a psychologist's discussion of papers on memory reactivation and consolidation in sleep.
The group of papers on memory reactivation and consolidation during sleep included in this volume represents cutting edge work in both animals and humans. They support that the two types of sleepExpand
The relationships between memory systems and sleep stages
TLDR
This model provides an explanation for why the acquisition of various types of skills and priming effects, subserved by different brain structures but all designated by the generic term of implicit or non‐declarative memory, may not benefit from the same sleep stages. Expand
About sleep's role in memory.
TLDR
This review aims to comprehensively cover the field of "sleep and memory" research by providing a historical perspective on concepts and a discussion of more recent key findings. Expand
Relief Expectation and Sleep
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the mediating effect of expectation on placebo-induced analgesia is strengthened by sleep, and that the individual amount of REM sleep is predictive of the relief expected on the next morning. Expand
Evidence of sleep-facilitating effect on formation of novel semantic associations: An event-related potential (ERP) study
TLDR
Unexpectedly, slow wave sleep was negatively correlated with improvement in recognition during the post-test but was positively correlated with the number of word-pairs acquired during the learning phase, suggesting that sleep has a facilitating effect on the formation of novel associations. Expand
Semantic priming effect during REM-sleep inertia in patients with narcolepsy
TLDR
A greater effectiveness of the activation of semantic memory during (SO)REM-sleep in NC patients rather than in normal subjects, and overall for the organization of new and unexpected relationships (such as those between unrelated pairs) between items of information. Expand

Neuromodulation: acetylcholine and memory consolidation
  • M. Hasselmo
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences

TLDR
It is suggested that the high levels of acetylcholine that are present during active waking might set the appropriate dynamics for encoding new information in the hippocampus, by partially suppressing excitatory feedback connections and so facilitating encoding without interference from previously stored information. Expand
Learning and sleep: the sequential hypothesis.
TLDR
In the rat, the main effect of learning on post-training SS consists in the selective increment in the average duration of SS episodes initiating different types of sleep sequences, and this effect in sleep sequences including transition sleep (TS), appears related to the processing of memories of the novel avoidance response. Expand
Dream Bizarreness as the Cognitive Correlate of Altered Neuronal Behavior in REM Sleep
TLDR
A neurophysiological model of dream bizarreness is proposed that may prove useful in understanding the contributions of REM sleep to the developmental and experiential plasticity of the cerebral cortex and the relationship between dream cognition and REM sleep neurophysiology. Expand
Memory performance after arousal from different sleep stages.

TLDR
Memory performance was found to be impaired where learning took place after non-REM arousal, and this was manifest in the number of categories recalled, over both immediate and subsequent recall, and in theNumber of items recalled per category over subsequent recall. Expand
The brain as a dream state generator: an activation-synthesis hypothesis of the dream process.
TLDR
The authors suggest that the automatically activated forebrain synthesizes the dream by comparing information generated in specific brain stem circuits with information stored in memory. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the specific loops give the content of cognition, and a nonspecific loop gives the temporal binding required for the unity of cognitive experience. Expand
Dependence on REM sleep of overnight improvement of a perceptual skill.
TLDR
Performance of a basic visual discrimination task improved after a normal night's sleep, indicating that a process of human memory consolidation, active during sleep, is strongly dependent on REM sleep. Expand
Functional neuroanatomy of human rapid-eye-movement sleep and dreaming
TLDR
A group study of seven subjects who maintained steady REM sleep during brain scanning and recalled dreams upon awakening shows that regional cerebral blood flow is positively correlated with REM sleep in pontine tegmentum, left thalamus, both amygdaloid complexes, anterior cingulate cortex and right parietal operculum.

Associative semantic network dysfunction in thought-disordered schizophrenic patients: Direct evidence from indirect semantic priming
TLDR
Data suggest that semantic associative memory operates at a comparatively lower signal-to-noise ratio in thought-disordered schizophrenic patients, and indirect semantic priming at short prime-target intervals appears to be the best indicator of associative network dysfunction. Expand
