You would think having lots of sex would make couples happier. After all that seems like common sense. If your relationship is going well, you’re more inclined to have sex; and if you are having plenty of sex, well then, your relationship must be going well.

Interesting enough, newlyweds who have a lot of sex don’t report being more satisfied than those who have sex less often. But the key word here is “report.” New research published in Psychological Science has found that their automatic behavioural responses don’t align with this.

It has been know for a while that sleep is important for learning and long-term memory formation. What is less clear is how exactly this works. Despite much research, this is an issue that was only imperfectly understood. Now it seems that new neuroscientific research may have the answer.

A study by neuroscientists at the University of California, Riverside offers some exciting glimpses into how the brain forms long-term memories as we sleep. Their study, which was recently published in the Journal of Neuroscience offers a mechanistic explanation for how deep sleep, called slow-wave sleep, helps us to consolidate memories.

Happy daydreams like these can make you feel better, but it turns out they may leave you feeling more unhappy in the long run. That’s according to research published in the journal Psychological Science, which looked at fantasies and depressive symptoms.
