Support of sleep for visual task learning

When any upset teacher scolds, in such cases students must be alert to learn. However science shows with increasing complexity the way the brain uses sleep for learning things. In San Diego, On November 10, 2013, at an annual meeting of the society for Neuroscience, Brown university researchers are going to discuss about new researches about the neural mechanism through which sleeping brain gets locked in learning a visual task. The increasing confirmation is that at the time of sleep, your brain utilized neural oscillations which are brain waves of certain frequencies in order to combine learning process in particular regions of the brain. Brown Scientists in August reported in journal of Neuroscience about two particular frequencies, delta and fast sigma have operated in the brain’s supplementary motor area that were straight away related with learning finger tapping duty similar to playing piano or typing. New results present something alike to visual duty in which nearly 15 volunteers are instructed to find a hidden surface among an unclear pattern of lines. It is a little bit like an inattentive game of “where’s Waldo”. Such preparation is not purely an academic activity according to Takeo Watanabe, professor of Cognitive, Linguistic and psychological sciences at Brown University. As said by Watanabe, “perceptual learning in general has been found to improve the visual ability of patients who have some decline of function due to aging.”
