Sleeping well appears to be one of the most important factors underlying success in learning! Why do we sleep? For many years, the physiological function of sleep has not been clear.
Restorative, protective and energy-conserving theories of sleep have been quite popular until quite recently, when it has become apparent that one long-lasting sleep episode with suppression of consciousness does not seem to be the right way for evolution to tackle depleted resources, toxic wastes, or energy conservation.
For example, muscles do not need to shut off completely to get rest. The critical function of sleep is dramatically illustrated in experiments in which rats chronically deprived of sleep eventually die usually within 2.
If you do not sleep, you die! In evolutionary terms, sleep is a very old phenomenon and it clearly must play a role that is critical to survival. Only quite recently, it has been proven beyond doubt that the function of sleep is related to learning not all scientists agree!
Researchers have long known about the importance of the hippocampus, a small brain organ, for memory formation.
Yet it has always been difficult to find out what is special about the hippocampus that distinguishes it from other areas of the cerebral cortex that also show synaptic plasticity, i.
A collective effort of a number of researchers resulted in the proposition of the concept of neural optimization in sleep see the next section for a metaphorical explanation: Disk and RAM metaphor.
The hippocampus acts as the central switchboard for the brain that can easily store short-term memory patterns. However, these patterns have to be encoded in the neocortex to provide space for coding new short-term memories.
This complex process of rebuilding the neural network of the brain takes place during sleep. Unlike rest or conservation of energy, this highest feat of evolutionary neural mathematics requires the brain to be shut off entirely from environmental input in most animals!
This automatic rewiring is the main reason for which we sleep and why there is no conscious processing involved! It rewires its circuits to make sure that all newly gained knowledge is optimally stored for future use.
We sleep so that the brain can integrate new knowledge and form new associations. As we must sleep for our brain to continue its function, our body attached dozens of important processes to run in sleep as well.
In simplest terms, in waking we use and burn, while in sleep we restore and synthetize. Sleep affects the function and health of the entire body. Sleep is controlled by a complex set of brain nuclei.
Interference with this system disrupts the function of sleep. Sleep control system For more see: Not all scientists agree. Disk and RAM metaphor A metaphor can help understand the role of sleep and why alarm clocks are bad.
During the day, while learning and experiencing new things, you store your new data in RAM memory. During the night, while first in NREM, you write the data down to the hard disk.
Overnight, you repeat the write-and-defragment cycle until all RAM data is neatly written to the disk for long-term useand your RAM is clear and ready for a new day of learning. Upon waking up, you reboot the computer. If you reboot early with the use of an alarm clock, you often leave your disk fragmented.
Your data access is slow, and your thinking is confused. Even worse, some of the data may not even get written to the disk. It is as if you have never stored it in RAM in the first place. In conclusion, if you use an alarm clock, you endanger your data.
If you do not care about your intellectual performance, you may want to know that there are many other biological reasons for which using alarm clocks is unhealthy.
Many people use alarm clocks and live. Yet this is not much different from smoking, abusing drugs, or indulging in fat-dripping pork. You may abuse your brain with alcohol for years, and still become president. Many inventions were produced by sleepy brains. But nothing is able to change the future as much as a brain refreshed with a healthy dose of restful sleep.

you'd write a program that simulated a. The recursive formula for the given sequence above which is 7, 13, 19, 25, and 31 and the next term in the sequence is this: an = an – 1 + 6, where a1 = 7; 37 Here is the solution: f(1) = /5(2). the Sidney sequence for 76 is given by 7, 6, 3, 9, 2, 1, 3, 4, 7, 1, 8, 9, 7, 6.
For the case when m ¼ 2, Larison showed there are six different repeating patterns generated by Sidney sequences.
