The brain is in charge of the body. The memory originates from the portion of the brain called the cellebrum.
The hippocampus is the division of the brain that processes memory.
The outermost region of the brain is referred to as the “gray matter” which is located in the cerebral cortex, where short and long term memory occurs.No one has perfect recall but as we grow older our memory begins to slowly fade.
In addition, diseases like Alzheimer’s can affect the brain. Strokes also influence our memory either blood is restricted from getting to certain areas of the brain or a blood vessel carrying the blood bursts and there is a blockage in the passageway.
Memory is also affected by a number of head injuries and emotional trauma. Infections and cancerous brain tumors have an effect on memory and can cause permanent short-term memory loss, as well as surgeries performed on the brain.
