Sleep benefits in parallel implicit and explicit measures of episodic memory.
Together with concordant observations in rats, results indicate that consolidation of genuinely episodic memory benefits from sleep.
Sleep enhances inhibitory behavioral control in discrimination learning in rats
It is infer from results that sleep enhances memory for inhibitory behavioral control in a generalized context-independent manner and thereby might eventually also contribute to the abstraction of schema-like representations.
Sleep and memory in mammals, birds and invertebrates
Hippocampal corticosterone impairs memory consolidation during sleep but improves consolidation in the wake state
This work corroborates the notion of distinct consolidation processes occurring inSleep and wakefulnesss, and identifies GCs as a key player controlling distinct hippocampal memory consolidation processes in sleep and wake conditions.
Sleep and Memory Consolidation
The reviewed work provides a clear picture of the function of sleep on memory consolidation and presents critical questions that will be essential to address regarding the extent of and limitations on sleep-dependent memory consolidation.
The hippocampus is crucial for forming non-hippocampal long-term memory during sleep
It is shown that the formation of long-term representations in a rat model of non-hippocampus-dependent memory depends not only on sleep but also on activation of a hippocampus-dependent mechanism during sleep, indicating that the hippocampus has an important role in long- term consolidation during sleep even for memories that have previously been considered hippocampus-independent.
A Bird's Eye View of Sleep-Dependent Memory Consolidation.
An overview of sleep-dependent memory consolidation is presented, focusing on how investigations of sleep and learning in birds have complemented the progress made in mammalian systems by emphasizing a strong connection between behavior and physiology.


Sleep-Dependent Facilitation of Episodic Memory Details
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.
Wistar rats show episodic-like memory for unique experiences
Sleep Enforces the Temporal Order in Memory
It is demonstrated that consolidation during sleep strengthens the original temporal sequence structure in memory, presumably as a result of a replay of new representations during sleep in forward direction, which suggests that the temporally directed replay of memory during sleep could be the key mechanism that explains how temporal order is integrated and maintained in the trace of an episodic memory.
Consolidation of strictly episodic memories mainly requires rapid eye movement sleep.
Results suggest that consolidation of truly episodic memories mainly involves REM sleep, and the effects of sleep deprivation during the first or second half of the night on episodic memory consolidation is examined.
Sleep Contributes to the Strengthening of Some Memories Over Others, Depending on Hippocampal Activity at Learning
The data indicate that relevant items that subjects strived to memorize are consolidated during sleep to a greater extent than items that participants did not intend to learn.
Sleep selectively enhances hippocampus-dependent memory in mice.
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.
Electrolytic lesions of dorsal CA3 impair episodic-like memory in rats
The memory function of sleep
Sleep has been identified as a state that optimizes the consolidation of newly acquired information in memory, depending on the specific conditions of learning and the timing of sleep, through specific patterns of neuromodulatory activity and electric field potential oscillations.
Opposite Effects of Cortisol on Consolidation of Temporal Sequence Memory during Waking and Sleep
Critically, the retention of temporal order within the texts, known to rely most specifically on the hippocampus proper within the medial-temporal lobe memory system, was distinctly improved by cortisol infusion during the wake phase but impaired by cortisol during sleep.
