Our team works in the field of neurosciences being our main objective to understand how memories are formed, and how they can be modified during sleep and wakefulness. Our research goes from the Basic Science studying how sleep participates in the improvement of memories, transfer of information between different brain areas, and integration of new information in pre-existing mnesic networks, to Applied Science studying how to improve memory during sleep in elderly people, patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s disease and Temporary Epilepsy.
