Many Studies have been conducted dealing with sleep and memory. Research results prove time and time again that sleep plays a role in memory and how we retain information. Bunney and Potkin suggest that declarative memory is improved by sleep (Bunney and Potkin, 2012), while Benson and Feinberg suggest that memory is retained more after Full-relaxed sleep (Benson and Feinberg, 1975).
