REM Sleep and Learning Retention

Are you getting sufficient REM sleep every night? If not, it could impact your learning retention. According to Pierce Howard, director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Studies in Charlotte, N.C., without sufficient rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, you can lose what you learned the day preceding sleep. More and more information is pointing toward the importance of getting sufficient sleep for your brain, every day. Employees who are learning new information on the job can further maximize learning retention by getting enough rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. (Fox, Adrienne.
