Understand How Sleep Impacts Learning and Memory
Date:11/26/2007

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Understand how improving your sleep can enhance your memory and intelligence. That's the message behind the new book "REM Illumination Memory Consolidation" (http://Lotusmagnus.com).

Written by Timothy J. Walter, M.D., a sleep medicine physician and neurologist, "REM Illumination Memory Consolidation" (Lotus Magnus, August 2007, ISBN-13: 978-1604022377, $19.95) integrates different research findings on sleep and memory into the first-ever cohesive theory about the overall process presented in a way that is easy to understand. Dr. Walter has translated the complex sleep research concepts into plain English using simple analogies so that any reader can benefit from this information.

In the book, Dr. Walter explains how our brains use emotion throughout the day as we live our lives to decide which memories are actually worth keeping. While we sleep, the same emotion in the dream may aid in the burning of the memory into the matrix of pre-existing memories.

Dr. Walter explains the amazing discovery of REM sleep windows, which are discrete windows in time following learning when we must dream if we are to permanently store memories. If these REM sleep opportunities are missed, either through sleep deprivation or a sleep disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea, the opportunity to store specific memories may be lost forever. Getting adequate sleep may improve learning and memory.

In addition to the printed version, "REM Illumination" is available as an e-book or audio book at http://Lotusmagnus.com. Potential buyers can also sample audio chapters at http://www.sleepreviewmag.com/podcast_dream.asp and purchase the paperback on Amazon.com at http://tinyurl.com/yqftad.

"Your most valuable asset is your consciousness," said Walter. "That is why I wrote this book."
