Ambien May Help to Improve Memory Psych Central News

New research confirms that memory is improved during sleep and that a of zolpidem (Ambien) or sodium oxybate (Xyrem), and a placebo.

“(P)harmacologically enhancing sleep spindles in healthy adults produces exceptional memory performance beyond that seen with sleep alone or sleep with the comparison drug (sodium oxybate),” the sleep researchers wrote.

During the trial investigators monitored participants sleep, measured sleepiness and mood after napping, and used several tests to evaluate their memory.

“… The results set the stage for targeted treatment of memory impairments as well as the possibility of exceptional memory improvement above that of a normal sleep period.”

New research confirms that memory is improved during sleep and that a common sleep aid may enhance the memory consolidation process.

She also hopes to study the impact of zolpidem on older adults, who experience poor declarative memory and also decreased sleep spindles.

The effect of 10 mg of zolpidem (ZLP) on memory function was evaluated in healthy male adults using word recall test, passage recall test, and Sternberg's memory scanning task. This study was carried out as a double-blind cross-over study with 7.5 mg of zopiclone (ZPC) and a placebo. No difference was noted between the active drugs and placebo in the number of words recalled from the word list presented before administration. No evidence of retrograde amnesia was suggested. However, encoding ability was slightly affected as indicated by a decrease in the number of words recalled from the list presented after administration. Slight impairment of a delayed recall was noted for both of the active drugs, but the effect disappeared the next morning. In the memory scanning task, ZLP prolonged a non-specific component of reaction time 1.5 h after administration, but the effect disappeared after 12.5 h. ZPC did not prolong the reaction time. The two active drugs showed no specific effects on either memory scanning or response-selection stage in short-term memory at any time. The findings suggest that residual effects did not reach clinical significance at the standard dosage, although the active drugs slightly affected encoding ability and retention soon after administration.

Ambien Can Improve Your Recall, But Only For Unhappy Memories

After taking zolpidem, their memory was enhanced--but it only increased their ability to remember the negative images, specifically those that.

If you're having a rough day, popping a sleeping pill and hitting the sack could be the worst thing you could do--it could help you recall bad memories even better than usual. Ambien has been shown to boost your brain's ability to store and consolidate memories. But it appears to work explicitly for negative emotional memories, according to new research from psychologists at the University of California.

This could be a result of our natural tendency to recall the bad, rather than the good. "We do seem to have a stronger memory for negative emotions," Mednick told me.
