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.

Sleep benefits memory in a myriad of ways. Most simply, it stabilizes recent memories and enhances recently practiced skills. In this session, Dr. Robert Stickgold will describe how the brain changes across sleep cycles, why certain memories are retained after sleep, and how dreaming works. Faculty will take a look at the interplay of dreams on memory processing and formation. Join us for this unique session that can assist you in understanding both your own sleep and the importance of sleep for your patients.
