On 27 July 2017 Reuters reported:
Three-month-old infants have better recall when they get a brief nap after learning something new, according to small experiment that suggests sleep may play a role in solidifying memories very early in life. While previous research has linked frequent naps to better memory in babies as young as 6 months, the current study examined the impact of a single 1.5- to 2-hour nap for infants half that age. The findings offer fresh evidence that sleep is critical to normal development even at a very young age, said Gina Poe, a resarcher in physiology and psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles, who wasn't involved in the study. 'Even if the job that you are tracking is done with a short nap, there may be other brain tasks that the brain is attending to during a longer nap that we don't know about,' Poe added. 'So never wake a sleeping baby.'
