Sleep Promotes the Extraction of Grammatical Rules
A) In the three wake groups (left column), Grammatical (G) and Non-Grammatical (NG) items were endorsed with almost equal rates. In the sleep groups (right column), however, Grammatical test sequences were clearly endorsed more often than Non-Grammatical ones, both for items with High and Low ACS. B) In all groups, participants endorsed more sequences with a High than a Low ACS. Endorsement is the proportion of sequences classified as Grammatical independent of the actual grammaticality status of items. Error bars denote standard error of the mean.
