Sleep helps us embed our memories in our knowledge of the world. Specific brain oscillations found during sleep are crucial for this process, and their presence and coordination across brain regions promotes memory performance. However, it is unknown how these rhythms emerge, organize, or how they mediate memory consolidation. In this talk I will show examples in which biophysical modeling and data analysis techniques contribute to our understanding of sleep oscillations and their role in memory, and illustrate how the emerging field of basic and computational science of sleep can bring up new facts about cognition and health.

This talk is free and open to the public.
