Introduction: Sleep deprivation modifies the lives of millions of people everyday and has a deep impact in brain molecular biology. These effects begin with a neuron working change, by DNA and RNA level and it results at modifications in neuronal plasticity and in absence’s regulation of cognitive functions, including learning and memory. A quality sleep contributes directly for the correct performance from activities by a biological cycle correspondent to a 24h period, besides, it is essential in consolidation memory process, which ones modifies depending about the circadian schedule that occurs. Aim: Review available research in literature that investigates changes in sleep quality and the relationship with human adult’s memory. Methods: Articles from this review was selected by means of two revisers (M.T) and (B.W) through search questions and structured according to adult’s human dates, except of exposure to light or prolonged sleep period, sleep disorders associate with memory alterations. Results: Circadian rhythm changes are directly associated with sleep performance and often interfere in memory execution in everyday life. Conclusion: About the exposed, verified that appropriate sleep is essential to the physiological system homeostasis as all; in this way, seems that individuals with sleep private make own adaptations in their physiological system trying to figure out everyday life situations and after that to perpetuate species; however how much physiological systems are affected regarding cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases still are not correctly understood.
Keywords: Chronobiology, sleep disorders, memory, circadian rhythm, humans.
