Sleep and cognitive health: neural mechanisms and clinical perspectives
Sleep is important for memory consolidation and cognitives performances during the day.
There is increasing evidence that brain oscillations during sleep play a central role in such processes. This presentation will review recent work from our lab on the interplay between brain rhythms during sleep, memory consolidation and age-related cognitive decline. We will also discuss recent data showing the impact of sleep disturbances on cognitive functions, as well as the effects of sleep-related interventions on memory performances.
