Where is short term memory stored - if it is not in the hippocampus (as explained in the key findings)?

Karin, this link will help with that. It is thought that working memory is actually "stored" in the prefrontal cortex, not in the hippocampus.

Will it be right to say that later as he was having memory issues, ethical standard of informed consent was not met.

John Crane 27 May 2018 - 07:37

Dear Shilpa, no this is not correct. All ethical standards were met, as consent was granted by the parents. Getting informed consent by proxy meets ethical standards and is not considered to be a violation. It is commonly used when people are no longer able to give consent themselves.
