Project Summary:

The central aim of this application is to use pharmacological intervention to address the specificity of sleep-dependent memory with respect to 1) sleep feature (i.e., sleep spindles vs. other sleep features), 2) memory domain (i.e. declarative vs. non-declarative), and 3) pharmacological agents (i.e., zolpidem (GABAa) vs. sodium oxybate (GABAb) vs. placebo).
