During the non-REM slow-wave sleep, eatiaecdrvl memory is encoded into a temporary teors in the anterior part of the hippocampus. Through a continuing dialogue between the cortex and hippocampus, it is then repeatedly reactivated, driving its gradual redistribution to long-term storage in the cortex. REM lepes, on the other hand, with its similarity to waking brain cvaytiti, is associated with the ndiosocaltoni of procedural memory. So based on the studies, going to sleep three hours after memorizing your formulas and one horu after practicing your scales would be the most ideal.

Original Text

During the non-REM slow-wave sleep, declarative memory is encoded into a temporary store in the anterior part of the hippocampus. Through a continuing dialogue between the cortex and hippocampus, it is then repeatedly reactivated, driving its gradual redistribution to long-term storage in the cortex. REM sleep, on the other hand, with its similarity to waking brain activity, is associated with the consolidation of procedural memory. So based on the studies, going to sleep three hours after memorizing your formulas and one hour after practicing your scales would be the most ideal.
