    J A Hobson
    Laboratory of Neurophysiology, Massachusetts Mental Health Center, USA
    J Vestib Res 8:81-94. 1998
    ..Using these techniques we will test the hypothesis that vestibular adaptation both provokes and is enhanced by REM sleep under both ground-based and space conditions. In this paper we describe preliminary results of some of our studies...

    R Stickgold
    Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 12:246-54. 2000
    ..These results suggest that, in the case of this visual discrimination task, both SWS and REM are required to consolidate experience-dependent neuronal changes into a form that supports improved task performance...
