There is now compelling evidence that sleep promotes the long-term consolidation of declarative and procedural memories. Behavioral studies suggest that sleep preferentially consolidates explicit aspects of these memories, which during encoding are possibly associated with activation in prefrontal-hippocampal circuitry. Hippocampus-dependent declarative memory benefits particularly from slow-wave sleep (SWS), whereas rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep seems to benefit procedural aspects of memory… Expand
Reactivation and Consolidation of Memory During Sleep
Recent research has shown compellingly that sleep supports the consolidation of declarative memories for events and facts. During consolidation, memories are stabilized against future interferenceExpand
Hippocampal memory consolidation during sleep: a comparison of mammals and birds
TLDR
Avian sleep does not appear to be involved in transferring hippocampal memories to other brain regions, and the slow‐oscillation, the defining feature of mammalian and avian SWS, may serve a more general function independent of that related to coordinating the transfer of information from the hippocampus to the PFC in mammals. Expand
The memory function of sleep
TLDR
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. Expand
Sleep selectively enhances hippocampus-dependent memory in mice.
TLDR
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. Expand
Biasing the content of hippocampal replay during sleep
TLDR
Rats were trained on an auditory-spatial association task while recording from neuronal ensembles in the hippocampus and it was found that, during sleep, a task-related auditory cue biased reactivation events toward replaying the spatial memory associated with that cue. Expand
Deciphering Neural Codes of Memory during Sleep
TLDR
A new unsupervised learning framework ('memory first, meaning later') for unbiased assessment of sleep-associated neural codes (SANCs) is proposed and a new analysis paradigms for sleep- associated memory are focused on. Expand
Evidence for sleep-dependent memory consolidation in humans and mice
Sleep has been implicated as playing an important role in memory consolidation. Considerable indirect evidence suggests a role for sleep in hippocampus-dependent memory in rodents. Hippocampal placeExpand
Sleep-dependent consolidation in multiple memory systems
Before newly formed memories can last for the long-term, they must undergo a period of consolidation. It has been shown that sleep facilitates this process. One hypothesis about how this may occur isExpand
Covert Reorganization of Implicit Task Representations by Slow Wave Sleep
TLDR
It is concluded that SWS promotes the neural reorganization of task representations that rely on the hippocampo-cortical system despite absence of conscious access to these representations. Expand
Sleep-dependent memory consolidation – What can be learnt from children?
TLDR
Findings indicate a major role of slow wave sleep (SWS) for processes of memory consolidation during early development, and that studies of ADHD children point toward an essential contribution of prefrontal cortex to the preferential consolidation of declarative memory during SWS. Expand

Declarative memory consolidation: mechanisms acting during human sleep.
TLDR
It is shown that declarative memory benefits mainly from sleep periods dominated by SWS, whereas there is no consistent benefit of this memory from periods rich in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Expand
Memory consolidation in human sleep depends on inhibition of glucocorticoid release.
TLDR
It is shown in healthy humans that an inhibition of glucocorticoid release from the adrenals serves to support declarative memory consolidation during sleep, and blocking mineralocortioid receptors by canrenoate did not affect memory, suggesting inactivation of glucOCorticoids receptors to be the essential prerequisite for memory consolidationduring early sleep.

TLDR
This is the first study to demonstrate that sleep protects declarative memories from subsequent associative interference, and it has important implications for understanding the neurobiology of memory consolidation. Expand

TLDR
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.

Are Spatial Memories Strengthened in the Human Hippocampus during Slow Wave Sleep?
TLDR
It is shown that, in humans, hippocampal areas that are activated during route learning in a virtual town are likewise activated during subsequent slow wave sleep, and that the amount of hippocampal activity expressed during slow waveSleep positively correlates with the improvement of performance in route retrieval on the next day.

Evidence for the influence of sleep discharge patterns on memory traces remains fragmentary and the underlying role of sleep in learning and memory has yet to be precisely characterized. Expand

Sleep after learning aids memory recall.
TLDR
It is shown that declarative memory is enhanced when sleep follows within a few hours of learning, independent of time of day, and with equal amounts of interference during retention intervals. Expand
