It is impossible to overestimate the importance of sleep. Adequate sleep is required for normal immune and hormonal function as well as for the clearance of Alzheimer-related proteins from the brain. But sleep plays its most critical role in supporting offline memory processing. Sleep contributes to the stabilization and strengthening of memories. It also supports the selective retention of emotional memories, the extraction of the gist of a learning session, and the discovery of the rules governing a complex probabilistic game. Dreams can reflect this ongoing memory processing, and dream content can predict subsequent memory improvement. Dreaming, as a conscious experience, may also play an important role in discovering connections among our manifold memories.

Syncope is defined as a transient loss of consciousness due to cerebral hypoperfusion with spontaneous return to baseline function without intervention. It is a common chief complaint of patients presenting to the emergency department. The differential diagnosis for syncope is broad, and the management varies significantly depending on the underlying etiology. A thorough history and certain physical exam findings can assist in evaluating for life-threatening diagnoses. Risk-stratifying patients into low, moderate, and high-risk groups can assist in medical decision-making and help determine the patient’s disposition.
