Effects of Sleep Deprivation and Aging on Long-Term and Remote Memory in Mice
Vecsey, Christopher G.; Park, Alan J.; Khatib, Nora; Abel, Ted
Learning & Memory, v22 n4 p197-202 Apr 2015
Sleep deprivation (SD) following hippocampus-dependent learning in young mice impairs memory when tested the following day. Here, we examined the effects of SD on remote memory in both young and aged mice. In young mice, we found that memory is still impaired 1 mo after training. SD also impaired memory in aged mice 1 d after training, but, by a month after training, sleep-deprived and control aged animals performed similarly, primarily due to remote memory decay in the control aged animals. Gene expression analysis supported the finding that SD has similar effects on the hippocampus in young and aged mice.
