If you are learning a new language, starting a new math chapter, or playing a new video game, you are more likely to master the skill if you’ve had sufficient sleep than if you have had a few sleepless nights.
Long-term memory suffers with sleep deprivation.
At first you may feel like you are more forgetful, but over time, you’ll gave a harder time storing even new memories, which affects memory recall for learning and working.
Why does this happen?
The hippocampus is part of the brain’s most primitive area – the limbic system – and it plays an important part in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory. The hippocampal memory involves calling up information you learned last week and applying it to the task at hand. One of the major functions of sleep is memory consolidation in the hippocampus.
