It turns out that sweet dreams may lead to sweeter memories.

A new study says interrupted sleep can impair your memory, and your learning ability.

Researchers at Stanford University say when lab mice were well-rested, they were highly curious and investigated new objects in their cages.

However, the scientists say when they interrupted the animals' sleep, the mice showed signs of memory loss.
