The interplay between sleep and memory in aging

As we grow older, memory and sleep quality usually decline. Due to the lack of studies on the correlation be-tween these two phenomena, Dr. Delphine Oudiette decided to investigate whether memory loss during aging reflects (even partially) a decline in sleep quality. Oudiette is using novel methods to manipulate memory processing during sleep. An advance in the understanding of the relationship between memory, sleep and aging could contribute to improving memory in normal and pathological aging."
