Good Sleep Improves Memory

Sunday 4th July 2010

Getting a good night's sleep could improve your memory, according to new research. Psychologists at Washington University in St. Louis explain that sleep improves prospective memory - or our ability to recall things we have planned to do.

Researchers claim that this new discovery could lead to experts developing a better idea of the role sleep plays in brain activity and the body's cognitive thinking.

The report differs from conventional sleep studies which have focused on sleep and the ability to retrieve memories and recall the past.
