U.S. researchers sleeping can help us remember things we have learnt. A team from Northwestern University report that a 90-minute can help people learn a new skill. The article on their research is published in the June of the journal "Nature". The scientists say: “Information acquired waking can be reactivated during sleep, memory stabilization.” Test volunteers practised musical tunes and after a short sleep. During the nap, the researchers played one of the the volunteers had practised, but not the other. The team found that the participants made errors when playing the melody that had been played they slept.

Study co- Dr Paul J. Reuber out the research might not work with learning a foreign language while you sleep. He said: "The critical is that our research shows that memory is for something you've already learned." He : "Rather than learning something new in your sleep, we're talking about enhancing an memory by re-activating information acquired." However, Dr Reuber did say there were for language learners: "If you were learning how to speak in a foreign language during the day, for example, and then tried to reactivate those during sleep, perhaps you might your learning," he said.
