A 3D illustration of the human brain highlighting the hippocampus, a component of the limbic system located in the medial temporal lobe of the brain. The hippocampus plays a role in short-term memory formation, long-term memory and spatial navigation. In Alzheimer's disease, the hippocampus is one of the first regions of the brain to be damaged, resulting in the early symptoms of memory loss or disorientation.
