while asleep actually works, but in a different way than previously
believed. Free Vocabulary Trainer mobile app launches sleep learning
function based on the latest research.
Barcelona, August 31st,
2016 - Recent findings at the university of Zurich have shown that
passive sleep learning actually works for memorizing vocabulary.
However, sleep learning works differently than was what was once
believed. As the complexity of the information that can be
processed during sleep is limited, sleep learning is most effective
for memorizing vocabulary that one has already been exposed to,
rather than acquiring completely new vocabulary.
During the sleep
learning session, memories are moved from short-term storage to the
prefrontal cortex, where they are then archived for long-term memory.
Recent research has shown that during the so-called NREM sleep phase,
the mind is not only receptive to audio playbacks of vocabulary
repetition but, astonishingly, the mind is more effective at
storing vocabulary in long-term memory when listening to vocabulary
revision during NREM sleep than when awake, saving language
learners many hours of vocabulary study.
Anyone can now try
sleep learning. It's easy and there's no cost using the free
Vocabulary Trainer mobile app for iOS and android. The app, which
has over 10 million users comes with the most frequent 5000
words in over 30 languages. The new, pioneering, sleep learning timer
function was designed according to the recommendations of the leading
researchers in the field of sleep learning.
Twenty to thirty
minutes after falling asleep the first NREM sleep phase starts and
will last for about 90 minutes. During this time an audio loop of the
60 most recently learned words will be played. EEG analysis in the
sleep laboratory showed no signs of interference with sleep quality.
Still, noise sensitivity during sleep varies greatly from person to
person. Anyone who finds themself waking up during sessions should
lower the volume. Particularly sensitive people may even wake up at
very low volumes, in which case, sleep learning may not be for them.
Each sleep learning
session will help build on current research as anonymous usage
data will be shared with researchers at the university of Zurich to
improve and deepen the understanding of optimum sleep learning
