    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Nat Neurosci 5:677-81. 2002
    ..This performance deterioration was prevented either by shifting the target stimuli to an untrained region of visual space or by having the subjects take a mid-day nap between the second and third sessions...
  2. pmc An opportunistic theory of cellular and systems consolidation
    Sara C Mednick
    University of California, San Diego, Department of Psychiatry 9116A, 3350 La Jolla Village Drive, San Diego, CA 92116, USA
    Trends Neurosci 34:504-14. 2011
    ..Instead, the brain opportunistically consolidates previously encoded memories whenever the hippocampus is not otherwise occupied by the task of encoding new memories...

    Sara C Mednick
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 5:e9775. 2010
    ..The results indicate that interventions should focus on healthy sleep to prevent drug use and targeting specific individuals may improve outcomes across the entire social network...

    S C Mednick
    Department of Psychiatry and Veterans Affairs, San Diego Healthcare System, University of California, San Diego, Research Service, La Jolla, CA 92161, United States

    Sara C Mednick
    University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA
    Perception 37:1086-97. 2008
    ..Without a nap, perceptual deterioration was related to decreases in the stimulus-driven, bottom-up representation, rather than decreases in attentional modulation to the stimulus...

    University of California, San Diego, Department of Psychiatry and Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System, Research Service, United States
    Behav Brain Res 193:79-86. 2008
