Time-of-day regulated processes such as sleep and circadian rhythms
are known to interact with plasticity related processes, such as
neural excitability, synaptic efficacy, and many forms of cognitive
processing, including learning and memory formation. The influence of
genetic, epigenetic, molecular, cellular, and circuit dynamics are
some of the factors that contribute to the ability of organisms to
adapt to changes in environmental stimuli, and often through
phylogenetically conserved pathways. Chronobiological underpinnings
regulating time-of-day mediated behaviors, such as circadian rhythms
and sleep, are thought to interact with, and even share in common
cellular processes, signaling cascades and molecular mechanisms which
shape plasticity. In this special topics issue, the goal is to
highlight current research and views on the expansive relationship
between sleep and chronobiology with plasticity and memory.
