The sleeping brain at work : perceptual processing and learning in human sleep Thomas Andrillon

Abstract : Every night we fall asleep and every morning we wake up. From what happens in the meantime, little is remembered. Others may say that we have moved, talked, laughed orcried, that the strongest and most vivid emotions took control of our body without leaving the faintest memory behind. Or others may have moved, talked, laughed or cried without our slightest notice. On the contrary, we can emerge from the most fantastic adventure in a quiet bed, cradled by a peaceable ticking clock. Without causing us much alarm, it seems that sleep entails a dissociation between what happens in ourenvironment and within our mind. Yet, at any moment, we can wake up and immediately regain consciousness of the surrounding world. Interestingly, it seems that certain sounds are more likely to awake us than others.Thus, are we completely disconnected from our environment when we sleep?
