Abstract

Children learn differently than adults: they have smaller knowledge bases and thus must rely more on rote learning. Incomplete development of cortical circuits and other cognitive systems leads to additional differences. Now a study argues that differences in sleep-dependent memory processing may be another important source of these differences.
