Author’s Abstract

  1. Following on from the target article, which presented a new model of procedural skill memory development, in this response I will reflect on issues raised by invited commentators and further expound attributes of the model.
  2. Discussion will focus on:
    1. evidence against sleep-dependent1 memory processing,
    2. definitions of memory stages and memory systems, and
    3. relationships between memory enhancement, sleep-stages2, dreaming, circadian time, and sleep-disorders3.
