Caption: Illustration of the areas of the brain that are active while memorising a lesson. The visual cortex (pink area) and the reading area (light blue area) are active when decrypting information. They then pass the baton to the temporal love (dark green area) and the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (light green area) that allows short-term memorisation. If the lesson is being learnt by repeating out loud, then Broca's cortex is active (purple area). The limbic system (yellow area) allows long-term memorisation, by associating information to memories and emotions.
