Beyond the Pillow: Navigating the Intersection of Sleep, Memory, and Emotion

Laura Riontino (Maitre assistante at University of Geneva)
Every evening, we succumb to sleep, a seemingly simple act masking intricate physiological processes. Governed by a 24-hour biological rhythm, our internal clock synchronizes with daylight to regulate sleep-wake cycles, temperature, and hormones. Recent research illuminates sleep's crucial role in memory consolidation, as the brain refines and enhances new memories during rest. Moreover, sleep profoundly influences emotional regulation, bolstering resilience to stress and fostering well-being. This delicate interplay between sleep, memory, and emotion underscores its profound impact on cognitive and emotional health, emphasizing the imperative of prioritizing quality sleep for overall well-being.
