REM sleep deprivation: The wrong paradigm leading to wrong conclusions

  • Jan Born (a1) and Steffen Gais (a1)
Abstract

There are obvious flaws in REM sleep suppression paradigms that do not allow any conclusion to be drawn either pro or contra the REM sleep-memory hypothesis. However, less intrusive investigations of REM sleep suggest that this sleep stage or its adjunct neuroendocrine characteristics exert a facilitating influence on certain aspects of ongoing memory formation during sleep.
