I sleep a lot. I mean, nine hours a night. Other people, like Margaret Thatcher and Donald Trump, have claimed to get by on four. Wouldn't it be great if I could use all that extra time to do something really useful, like learn a new language? On p.22, Gareth Gaskell considers emerging evidence in the field of memory consolidation.

Professor Gaskell is from one of the so-called Russell Group universities. I sometimes hear the view that such psychologists don't read or contribute to the magazine. This is demonstrably false, and in any case I am very proud of how we have worked to increase the diversity of authorship over the years. But maybe it's true that in those departments there are fewer Society members, and many prominent psychologists who have never featured in our pages. If you work in one, why not pass your copy round, so they can see how we have changed? And set us a challenge: fire a name at me, and I'll persuade them that we can help them reach a large and professional audience.
