Newsweek seems to be doing a series on memory this week and just published two interesting articles.
The first article, entitled Sleep Now, Remember Later has some interesting data from recent studies on the role that sleep plays in the formation of memories.
The second article, entitled To Pluck A Rooted Sorrow is perhaps even more startling. It discusses studies around the science of forgetting. This is very interesting stuff and has interesting potential for PTSD sufferers.
I simply highlight the articles here because I found them interesting and brain science will be an occasionally recurring topic on this blog.
