Dreams, mnemonics, and tuning for criticality

  • Barak A. Pearlmutter (a1) and Conor J. Houghton (a2)

Abstract

According to the tuning-for-criticality theory, the essential role of sleep is to protect the brain from super-critical behaviour. Here we argue that this protective role determines the content of dreams and any apparent relationship to the art of memory is secondary to this.
