The Role of the Hippocampus and Cerebral Cortex in Long-Term Memory Storage

Description
Functional imaging revealed that the retrieval of the youngest long-term memories activated the hippocampus more than the cortex of the superior frontal gyrus, but retrieval of older and older memories activated the hippocampus less and the cortex more, until at 9 years, both regions were activated approximately equally. (Data from Smith and Squire, 2009.)
