Reactivation or transformation? Motor memory consolidation associated with cerebral activation time-locked to sleep spindles
TLDR
The present findings demonstrate that striatal reactivation linked to sleep spindles in the post-learning night, is related to motor memory consolidation.
Sleep spindles track cortical learning patterns for memory consolidation
TLDR
Empirical evidence is provided for a role of post-learning sleep spindles in tracking learning networks, thereby facilitating memory consolidation in healthy volunteers.
Occipital sleep spindles predict sequence learning in a visuo-motor task
TLDR
Findings suggest a sleep-dependent improvement in the prediction of visual sequences, likely related to visual cortex reactivation during sleep spindles, consistent with enhanced automaticity in the processing of predictable sequences.
Cued reactivation during slow-wave sleep induces brain connectivity changes related to memory stabilization
TLDR
It was found that cue presentation during slow-wave sleep increased global network integration of occipital cortex, a visual region that was also active during retrieval of object locations, and this cross-regional integration may be instrumental for the consolidation and long-term storage of enduring memories.
Targeted memory reactivation during sleep elicits signals related to learning content
TLDR
Results show that lateralized activity related to individual memories can be decoded from sleep EEG, providing an effective indicator of offline reactivation of learning-related neural activity patterns.
Endogenous memory reactivation during sleep in humans is clocked by slow oscillation-spindle complexes
TLDR
The results reveal reactivation of learning material during SO-spindle complexes, with the precision of SO- spindle coupling predicting reactivation strength and elucidate the memory function of sleep in humans and emphasize the importance of SOs and spindles in clocking endogenous consolidation processes.
Local sleep spindle modulations in relation to specific memory cues
Targeted Memory Reactivation during Sleep Elicits Neural Signals Related to Learning Content
TLDR
This work leverages the prominent electrophysiological signal triggered by lateralized movements to robustly demonstrate the retrieval of specific cued memories during sleep, and predicts subsequent memory and is correlated with sleep spindles, neural oscillations that have previously been implicated in memory stabilization.

Replay of rule-learning related neural patterns in the prefrontal cortex during sleep
TLDR
Recording neuron ensembles in the rat medial prefrontal cortex to study memory trace reactivation during SWS following learning and execution of cross-modal strategy shifts found that learning influenced which patterns were most strongly encoded and successively reactivated in the hippocampal/prefrontal network.
Elevated Sleep Spindle Density after Learning or after Retrieval in Rats
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The data suggest that brain activity is restructured during sleep in such a way that navigation in the virtual environment, initially related to a hippocampus-dependent spatial strategy, becomes progressively contingent in part on a response-based strategy mediated by the striatum.
Stored-Trace Reactivation in Rat Prefrontal Cortex Is Correlated with Down-to-Up State Fluctuation Density
TLDR
It is shown that prefrontal stored-trace reactivation is correlated with the density of down-to-up state transitions of the population of simultaneously recorded cells, as well as K-complexes and low-voltage spindles in the local field potential, strengthening the connection between reactivation and learning.
Disruption of ripple‐associated hippocampal activity during rest impairs spatial learning in the rat
TLDR
It is shown that disrupting neuronal activity during ripple events impairs spatial learning in rats, and interfering with hippocampal processing during sleep led to decreased learning.
