Past, present, and the future: Discussions surrounding a new model of sleep-dependent learning and memory processing

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (1):87-104 (2005)


Following on from the target article, which presented a new model of procedural skill memory development, in this response I will reflect on issues raised by invited commentators and further expound attributes of the model. Discussion will focus on: evidence against sleep-dependent memory processing, definitions of memory stages and memory systems, and relationships between memory enhancement, sleep-stages, dreaming, circadian time, and sleep-disorders.
