Disturbances in the regularity of these cycles have negative repercussions on the different forms of memory. A reduction in the duration and quality of deep sleep, without modification of the total sleep time, leads to a deficit of declarative memory. On the contrary, an improvement in the quality of deep sleep reinforces this form of memory.
