Abstract
Sleep plays an important role in neural reorganisation which underpins memory consolidation. The gradual replacement of hippocampal binding of new memories with intracortical connections helps to link new memories to existing knowledge. This process appears to be faster for memories which fit more easily into existing schemas. Here we seek to investigate whether this more rapid consolidation of schema-conformant information is facilitated by sleep, and the neural basis of this process.
