Don't count your chickens before they're hatched: Elaborative encoding in REM dreaming in face of the physiology of sleep stages
|Published in||Behavioral and Brain Sciences. 2013, vol. 36, no. 6, p. 613-4|
|Abstract||Llewellyn suggests that episodic memories undergo "elaborative encoding" during rapid eye movement (REM) dreams, generating novel associations between recent and remote memories that are then instantiated during non-REM (NREM) sleep. This hypothesis conflicts with our knowledge of the physiology of NREM and then REM sleep stages and their ordered succession. Moreover, associations during sleep might also involve the extraction of hidden patterns rather than de novo associations.|
