    About This Project

    Sleep is beneficial for memory formation. Consequently, those with poor sleep quality (e.g., older adults) also have increased forgetfulness. Improving sleep quality using a known mechanism -- mild skin warming -- should improve memory formation in adults. Enhancing sleep by natural means (a water-infused skin-warming suit!) to enhance memory formation could impact the lives of countless older adults who suffer from memory deficits.
