Departmental Colloquium: Penny Lewis (Cardiff University): Sleep, consolidation, and semantic memory

The CEU Campus
Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Sleep is important for the construction of semantic knowledge frameworks through consolidation of episodic memories, extraction of statistical regularities, and integration of incoming information with pre-existing schemas.  This talk will discuss evidence supporting these ideas, as well as the processes during sleep are thought to lead to such abstraction.
