Weekly soundsHere we go again with the best roundup on the world of Sound with with Weekly Sounds, what happened during this week?

Two interesting articles on the side of acoustic research: New Spin on ‘Sound Sleep’, where a study shows that playing sounds to the rhythm of oscillations in slow-wave sleep boosts memory, and Dyslexia Linked to Brain’s Inconsistency with Encoding Sound, in which researchers discover children who are the best readers are also the ones who encode the sound most consistently. New perspectives for Audio Branding?
