Abstract. Mood-congruent memory bias is a critical characteristic of depression, but the underlying neural mechanism is largely unknown. Negative memory schema
Martin DreslerNegative memory schemas and mood-congruent memory bias are critical characteristics of major depression. New study by @LeonoreBovy supports previous causal evidence for a role of the mPFC in schema processing and suggests a role of the mPFC in memory bias.
Delta waves are moments of widespread cortical silence that alternate with active states during slow-wave sleep. However, upon closer examination, single neuronal action potentials can be detected during delta waves. Todorova and Zugaro sought to...
Martin DreslerSleep delta waves are not periods of complete silence but harbor cortical computations related to memory consolidation

Sleep plays a critical role in memory consolidation, however, the exact role that sleep and its effects on neural network dynamics play in this process is still unclear. Here, we combine computational and experimental approaches to study the...
Martin DreslerSleep plays an active role in memory consolidation by switching the hippocampal network from rate-based to phase-based information representation.
Weekend recovery sleep is a common sleep-loss countermeasure. Depner et al. show that
short sleep led to later timing of energy intake, weight gain, and reduced insulin
sensitivity. Weekend recovery sleep failed to prevent later timing of energy...
Martin DreslerWeekend recovery sleep is not an effective strategy to prevent metabolic dysregulation associated with recurrent insufficient sleep.
Sleep appears to be a universally conserved phenomenon among the animal kingdom, but whether this notable evolutionary conservation underlies a basic vital function is still an open question. Using a machine learning–based video-tracking technology,...

8 – 12 July 2019. Sleep is an enigma: why do we spend a third of our lives shut off from the world? We will explore the cognitive functions of sleep, including memory consolidation, emotional processing, and dreaming.

Perrault et al. report that a gentle rocking stimulation applied continuously during
a whole night promotes deep sleep and memory consolidation in healthy sleepers. By
showing how rhythmic sensory stimuli actively entrain EEG brain waves of sleep,...
