Now it is proven: One can learn new words in your sleep

the Time in dreamland has been seen as a little productive and one question has been central in søvnforskning: you Can use the time sleeping to learning, for example, a completely new language?

More søvnforskere have previously doubted it, but now believes a multi-disciplinary team at the university of Bern in Switzerland that it is possible.

Subjects who slept during the day got to read a variety of vocabulary, all large or small objects such as houses, elephant, key and cork, from a fictitious language with accompanying translations. The words were read several times. During specific phases of deep sleep was formed minneformasjoner in the hippocampus, the brain is perhaps the most important minnebank.

After they were awakened, got people the new words read to him in the waking state and managed in large measure to place them in different categories according to size.

test subjects managed with other words, to retrieve from the memory associations to the number of words in a new language which they could not before they took a nap earlier in the day.

Why you should never sleep with an open soveromsdør dinside Exciting and important

Professor Katharina Henke, department of Psychology at the University of Bern has been leading the research collaboration "Decoding Sleep" together with Marc Züst, and Simon Ruch. She predicts that research on how you can take advantage of learning during the deep sleep, will be a theme in the years to come. There will also be a theme what are the consequences of it will be able to get to bring the brain information in the unconscious condition.

Søvnforsker Bjørn Bjorvatn is director and professor at the National centre of excellence for søvnsykdommer at Haukeland universitetssjukehus in Bergen.

- This is the exciting results, which show that sleep is very important. Here shows the research importance for memory and learning, and several other studies have also shown the importance of sleep for a number of different functions, " he says to NTB.

the Same location

the test Results are published in the forskningstidsskriftet "Current Biology". Co-author Marc Züst find it particularly interesting that when the test subjects would associate to the foreign language words, it was the memories brought up from the same area in the brain that memories are stored by learning in the awake state, the hippocampus.

- These hjernekonstruksjonene looks to shape memories, regardless of the condition of consciousness - the unconscious during deep sleep or conscious while you are awake, " says Züst.

One of the other researchers on the project, Simon Ruch, believes the results show that advanced learning is possible during deep sleep.

Far forward So you get morgenfuglene to sleep longer

however, It is a long time left to you possibly can add itself to the right in the horizontal, and learn a language fluently while you sleep. Bjorvatn, Bergen reminiscent of that one yet, should take to themselves that the research once again shows the importance of sleep for your body to function.

- Think of how many that do not give priority to sleep enough. It has consequences. Maybe something to think about, when one night rather choose to be awake an hour extra instead of prioritizing sleep, he says to NTB.
