    About This Project

    Sleep is beneficial for memory formation. Consequently, those with poor sleep quality (e.g., older adults) also have increased forgetfulness. We plan to see whether improving sleep quality using a known mechanism -- mild skin warming -- will improve memory formation in adults. Enhancing sleep by natural means can enhance memory formation, and, in effect, can impact the lives of countless older adults who suffer from memory deficits.
