Sleep effects on a classification task. (A) Change in classification accuracy across over 30 sleep epochs (100s each). Blue and red are respectively the conditions in which thalamus is on and off. The improvement in accuracy is averaged over 30 simulation trials. SEM is reported in the shading. (B) Average synaptic potentiation and depression over 30 sleep epochs. The colors indicate connections between neurons coding the same instance (yellow), different instances of the same class (green) and instances of different classes (orange). Dashed and solid lines represent the comparison between the conditions in which thalamus is on and off. (C) Average synaptic depression over all the synapses. (inset) Average decrease of SO frequency across sleep time, average over 4 simulations. (D) Scatter of single neurons activity in 8 simulations averaged over time in a classification task before and after 3000s of sleep. Inset, average difference of activity after and before sleep as a function of activity before sleep.
