# s-sleep: immunological data store during deep sleep

<< Later studies have shown that slow-wave sleep, often referred to as deep sleep, is important for transforming fragile, recently formed memories into stable, long-term memories. Now (..) researchers propose that deep sleep may also strengthen immunological memories of previously encountered pathogens >>

<< We consider our approach toward a unifying concept of biological long-term memory formation, in which sleep plays a critical role, a new development in sleep research and memory research. >>
