Hippocampus   1 comment

No, it is not an enclosure to keep the hippopotamus. It has, in fact, no relation to hippopotamus.

Hippocampus is an area of the brain that :

• Stores and processes memories
• Helps find memories
• Affects emotions

The hippocampus helps to encode memories, and then helps to find them when you want to remember something.
