the frontal lobe is responsible for our higher activities, right like speech,etc
so maybe its responsible for memory too
anyway, from what baikuza said i thought it would be the frontal lobe ......... :P 8) :lol: :D
back to my original question...
is there a possibility of it being affected. :?: :?:

Do we know exactly where memory is located? because in my anatomy book it is wirtten that we don't...
Whaty i do know is that in the formation of memory contributes the neocortex, paleocortex, SRAA and thalamus.
