The aim of this study was to examine role of night sleep and wake on processing reconsolidation based enhancement and stabilization in explicit motor memory. The population of present research was female students in human science fields of Azad University. The statistical sample of this study was 80 right-handed female students. Participation randomly divided into four groups. This research consisted of two phases of acquisition and retention. Alternating serial reaction time task and choosing RT software were used for this research. Results showed that in recall phase, the epoch main effect, group main effect and interactive effect were significant (p<0.05). All groups, in retention test, showed the better performance than acquisition phase. Practice in group with 12h recall + interference after night sleep lead to decrease the reaction time than other groups and this group occurred processing reconsolidation based
Enhancement and stabilization. In group 12h recall with wake only occurred processing reconsolidation based Enhancement and no occur reconsolidation based stabilization (p<0.05). In Our Results indicated that make offline period after sleep of night phase could be facilitated the explicit motor memory reconsolidation.
