There is now a substantial body of data to suggest a relationship between sleep states, particularly paradoxical sleep (PS) or rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, and learning. In animal studies, PS increases have been observed following acquisition in formal tasks and following exposure to enriched environments (EE). Further, PS deprivation at certain post-training times is known to impair memory for recently acquired tasks. PS deprivation following EE exposure has been reported to impair the… CONTINUE READING
