Learning best when you rest: Sleeping after processing new info most effective

Learning best when you rest: Sleeping after processing new info most effective | 21st Century Concepts- Educational Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Nodding off in class may not be such a bad idea after all. New research shows that going to sleep shortly after learning new material is most beneficial for recall. While this may simply seem to confirm what has been known from earlier studies, "what's novel about this study" say the authors, "is that we tried to shine light on sleep's influence on both types of declarative memory by studying semantically unrelated and related word pairs."
