The Palace of Memories
by: Abbey Clouse
What is it?
whats going on in there?
Deep inside the medial temporal lobe is the region of the brain known as the limbic system, which includes the hippocampus, the amygdala, the cingulate gyrus, the thalamus, the hypothalamus, the epithalamus, which help with processing of memory.
The parts of the brain associated with memory that are being used are working just fine, but what about the rest of the brain? Every part of the brain has an important job but they all need energy to work, all of the energy is being focused on that one part of the brain causing the other parts to not be as active.
