Understanding the human brain clock & related neuroscience
Regarding education psychology. Have you ever given thought to the impact of Slow Wave Sleep (SWS) on memory and learning. SWS is when temporary memory traces stored in the hippocampus are transferred to the neocortex for permanent storage. SWS is also when infants die of SIDS. For 20 years now the medical community has been advocating ways to reduce SWS in infants (back sleep, pacifiers, etc.). Do you think this could have an impact on learning, memory consolidation, and behavior of children?
