HighlightsNap sleep benefits high but not low rewarded information.Spindle density correlates with high reward memory retention post‐sleep.Spindle density correlates with overall memory performance pre‐ and post‐sleep. Abstract The consolidation of new associations is thought to depend in part on physiological processes engaged during non‐REM (NREM) sleep, such as slow oscillations and sleep spindles. Moreover, NREM sleep is thought to selectively benefit associations that are adaptive for the… CONTINUE READING
