1/07/2013 ' 30/06/2017 FNRS Research project (PDR) 14626883 (principal promotor): Within-sleep stimulation of brain activity and formation of novel memories. With this project we essentially aim at better understanding processing information abilities during human sleep, and their relationships with memory consolidation and creation processes. To do so, we will mainly investigate (1) how and whether consolidation of novel information in memory is enhanced and/or disrupted through presentation of related cues at non-awakening thresholds during different stages of sleep, (2) whether increases in memory consolidation-related slow wave sleep (SWS) oscillations (using transcranial direct current stimulation [TDCS]) are commonly or distinctly beneficial to the long-term consolidation of neutral and emotional components of memories, and (3) whether it is possible to create de novo associations during a sleep episode using classical trace (hippocampus-dependent) or delay (hippocampus-independent) conditioning procedures, as evidenced using both behavioural measurements and neurophysiological recordings of cerebral activity using electroencephalography [EEG] and magnetoencephalography [MEG] techniques.
