Music-Playing Wristband Cements Long-Term Memories
San Francisco-based Sheepdog Sciences has created a device that helps you learn while sleeping.
Sheepdog Sciences is a bit different from your typical tech startup. Formed by a group of neuroscientists, this San Francisco-based shop develops devices based on years of biomedical research, specifically relating to the state of human sleep.
While the startup may not sound all that exciting, the company’s latest device is certainly an innovation worth some attention.
What Sheepdog has created is a wristband that can help you commit facts to memory… while you’re sleeping. It may sound unbelievable, but the idea is based on scientific research that suggests that long-term memories are formed while you’re in bed, or more specifically, while you’re in a deep state of unconsciousness.
