When impaired by alcohol, hippocampus makes your memory disconnected
To understand it we will compire your brain with a computer which has a processor, inputs (keyboard/mous) and memory units.
- The cortex is like a CPU, it is used for judgment and reasoning
- The cerebellum, used for balance and coordination – like a mouse or keyboard
- The hypothalamus, for regulating temperature, appetite, pain, and emotions – it is like an chipset which controls sensors on the motherboard
- The hippocampus – plays an important role in memory and learning – it is like a RAM or harddrive.
When you drunk every system gets impated but only last one makes your memory pure.
