procedural is stored in the cerebellum; where are the other forms of energy stored? the limbic system?

Hi khadeja,

Here's a really nice overview, which I think is cool because it also contains explanations of how we know. The short answer is that explicit memories are stored in the hippocampus, the neocortex and the amygdala, while short-term working memory is stored in the prefrontal cortex.
