About This Project
Our brains are very busy when we sleep. We need sleep not only to avoid being drowsy, but also to maintain our memories. Memories stored in the brain can be reactivated during sleep, and reactivating a memory can improve the ability to remember it later. Research in our lab focuses on how we remember and how sleep helps. Our new study will tell us whether false memories can be artificially implanted during sleep.
