There are different kinds of long-term memory. Here are some examples:
Long-term memories aren’t stored in a single place in the brain. Instead, various areas of the cerebral cortex store different aspects of memories. For example, the memories of sights tend to be stored in the visual cortex, while smells are stored in the olfactory cortex. An area of the temporal lobe, the hippocampus, helps coordinate all the different pieces of information to form a complete memory.
