Naps boost sophisticated memory

Indeed, scientists increasingly are focusing less on sleep duration and more on the quality of sleep, what’s called sleep intensity, in studying how sleep helps the brain process memories so they stick. Particularly important is “slow-wave sleep,” a period of very deep sleep that comes earlier than better-known REM sleep, or dreaming time.

Fishbein suspected a more active role for the slow-wave sleep that can emerge even in a power nap. Maybe our brains keep working during that time to solve problems and come up with new ideas. So he and graduate student Hiuyan Lau devised a simple test: documenting relational memory, where the brain puts together separately learned facts in new ways.

New Schedule:

We have added some new class times as well as modified some class times. Please note the primary differences:

-There is now class EVERY WEEKDAY at 9:30 and 10:30am.

-Evening Classes are ON THE HOUR.

-Sundays are “BRING YOUR FRIENDS” day. Sundays are free to all people looking to get started in CrossFit. So it is a great time to bring a friend!

-Muay Thai Kickboxing is open to all DCF members (no extra charge for Muay Thai)!
