Hippocampus and medial temporal lobe are required for the formation of declarative memory. Once declarative memory is encoded, it is available to one’s conscious perception. On the contrary, hippocampus and medial temporal lobe are not required for the formation of procedural memory. Once procedural memory is encoded, it is not available to one’s conscious perception. 2.
