(p.17) Chapter 1 Memory, Cognition, and Dreams
Sleep and Brain Plasticity

Robert Stickgold

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews recent findings from studies on cognitive processing during sleep using two distinct approaches. It first describes a series of studies that used standard cognitive testing to determine how these basic cognitive processes are altered during various sleep stages. It then describes a second set of experiments which used actual dream reports to investigate the nature of cognitive processing during sleep. The chapter concludes with a model of dream construction that suggests the nature of the relationship between dreaming and off-line memory reprocessing.

Keywords:   cognitive processing, REM sleep, sleeping, cognitive testing, dreaming
