What part of human nervous system is responsible for memory?

Sympathetic nervous system
Amygdala
Hippocampus
Cerebellum
The hippocampus (named after its resemblance to the seahorse) is a major component of the brains of humans and other vertebrates. The hippocampus belongs to the limbic system and plays important roles in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory, and in spatial memory that enables navigation. The hippocampus is located under the cerebral cortex (allocortical) and in primates in the medial temporal lobe.
