Sleep & Building Relational Memories

Sleep & Building Relational Memories

It’s no secret that sleep is important for our mental and physical health. But did you know that our relational memories are built while we sleep? Because memory function and sleep quality can decline with age, this study becomes even more relevant. In the study out of the University of California San Diego School of Medicine, researchers “describe the underlying mechanisms that strengthen or create new relational memories during sleep.” By using an “artificial model of two regions of the brain,” the study found that “focusing on improving slow-wave sleep in order to alleviate some of the cognitive symptoms… may be a more fruitful path forward than focusing on the cognitive symptoms exclusively.”
