Large parts of the brain store memories In the 1930s, Karl Lashley began a systematic quest to find the exact location of memory in the brain. He taught rats and monkeys a variety of tasks, then destroyed a part of their brain, reasoning that if the animals could not remember after the lesion, then he must have found the place where memories reside. After years of frustration, Lashley concluded that nothing short of near complete destruction of the brain caused the animals to forget their tasks, and it seemed that biological study of memory was not possible. More recent studies have shown that declarative memories are stored widely in specialized regions of cortex (according to the type of memory) and that retrieving this information involves frontal cortical areas.
