But just how sleep can amp up the signal and dial down the noise isn’t clear. 

不过睡眠如何放大有用信息信号,减少无用信息噪声仍不清楚。 

A team, led by neurologist Karunesh Ganguly at the University of California, San Francisco in the US, has set about fixing that, aided by mice with some very sophisticated hardware in their noggins.

美国加州大学旧金山分校神经病学家Karunesh Ganguly领导的团队,通过老鼠大脑装上先进硬件器件进行了该项试验研究。
