Learning with the Lights Out

Researchers are uncovering the link between sleep and learning and how it changes throughout our lives. Drs. Rebecca Gómez and Jamie Edgin study sleep and memory formation in children of different ages. Gómez finds that naps are crucial for infants to retain a memory a day later.

Edgin and her former graduate student Dina Spanò, are investigating sleep and memory formation in children with Down syndrome.
