Sleep Enhances Recognition Memory for Conspecifics as Bound into Spatial Context
The findings suggest that sleep, rather than independently enhancing social and spatial aspects of memory, consolidates social memory by acting on an episodic representation that binds the memory of the conspecific together with the spatial context in which it was recently encountered.
Transcranial Slow Oscillation Stimulation During Sleep Enhances Memory Consolidation in Rats
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.
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.


Hippocampal Sharp Wave/Ripples during Sleep for Consolidation of Associative Memory
This study addresses the hypothesis that the fast oscillations known as ripples recorded in the CA1 region of the hippocampus during slow wave sleep (SWS) may provide a physiological substrate for long term memory consolidation by training rats in a spatial discrimination task.

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.
Post-training reversible inactivation of the hippocampus enhances novel object recognition memory.
It is found that the inactivation of the dorsal hippocampus after training impairs object-place recognition memory but enhances novel object recognition (NOR) memory, and activity in the hippocampus can interfere with the consolidation of object recognition memory when object information encoding occurs in an unfamiliar environment.
Learning and sleep: the sequential hypothesis.
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.
Sleep transforms the cerebral trace of declarative memories
Using functional MRI, it is shown that postlearning sleep enhances hippocampal responses during recall of word pairs 48 h after learning, indicating intrahippocampal memory processing during sleep, and that sleep induces a memory-related functional connectivity between the hippocampus and the mPFC.
A time for learning and a time for sleep: the effect of sleep deprivation on contextual fear conditioning at different times of the day.
The notion that sleep immediately following acquisition, independent of time of day, promotes memory consolidation and that sleep deprivation may disrupt this process depending on the amount of sleep that is lost is supported.
Elevated Sleep Spindle Density after Learning or after Retrieval in Rats
The present study reports the first indication of learning-associated increase in spindle density in the rat, providing an animal model to study the role of brain oscillations in memory consolidation during sleep and substantially extend findings in humans.
Learning-Dependent Increases in Sleep Spindle Density
Results indicate that spindle activity during non-REM sleep is sensitive to previous learning experience, and spindle density was correlated to recall performance both before and after sleep.
Sleep deprivation selectively impairs memory consolidation for contextual fear conditioning.
Sleep deprivation from 0-5 h after training for this task impaired memory consolidation for contextual fear conditioning whereas sleep deprivation from 5-10H after training had no effect, suggesting that sleep deprivation may act by modifying these molecular mechanisms of memory storage.
