A collection of brain structures located near the brain stem. It is comprised of the amygdala, the hippocampus, and the limbic cortex. Damage to the limbic system has been known to produce defects in declarative memory (but not in non-declarative memory).
It is currently believed that long term memories are not stored in the limbic system but that the hippocampus participates in memory acquisition and the establishment of enduring and retrievable memories elsewhere in the brain.
