Memory and Sleep


In the evidence section of our online store you can find a sleep study that shows hypnosis improves slow wave sleep (SWS) by 80 percent. And sleep is important in long term memory.

Research from Zurich and Germany has revealed the importance of slow-wave sleep (SWS) for memory consolidation.

Specifically, these findings characterize sleep as a brain state that optimizes memory consolidation, and the waking brain being optimized for encoding of memories.

Consolidation originates from the reactivation of recently encoded memories. It occurs during SWS and transforms the encoded memories into long-term memory. Ensuing REM sleep may stabilize transformed memories.
