Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the processes of learning and memory consolidation, it has been demonstrated that sleep is extremely important. The underlying neurophysiological mechanisms of memory consolidation, however, have not yet been fully understood.

In this Special Issue, we want to learn more about the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying sleep-dependent memory consolidation. We would like to address issues like, "Does sleep play a permissive or an instructional function in memory consolidation?" Does sleep help the brain's cellular and molecular signaling pathways that support memory consolidation? Does sleep improve memory by promoting hippocampus neurogenesis?

This Special Issue welcomes original research, clinical studies, and review articles that help advance our understanding of the interactions between Adult Neurogenesis and learning and memory as well as sleep from biochemical, behavioral, or cellular aspects.
