About the Project
Learning and sleep are linked. Learning affects sleep architecture and these learning induced changes may optimize circuits for future learning the next day.
Alternatively, learning may affect one set of sleep mechanisms, while another entirely distinct set of mechanisms determines future learning the next day.
Distinguishing between these possibilities will give fundamental insights into how plasticity is enacted and organized within the human brain, reveal its relationship to sleep, and demonstrate how sleep affects learning.
We will combine high-density sleep recording with learning tasks to identify those aspects of sleep affected by earlier learning, and affecting subsequent learning.
This project will provide novel fundamental insights into the relationship between learning and sleep, and a timely test of a novel approach to enhance learning.
