Question Answer
Declarative memories are encoded by the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex and perirhinal cortex (all within the medial temporal lobe of the brain), but are consolidated and stored in the temporal cortex and elsewhere.
Procedural memories do not appear to involve the hippocampus at all, and are encoded and stored by the cerebellum, putamen, caudate nucleus and the motor cortex, all of which are involved in motor control.
semantic memory mainly activates the frontal and temporal cortexes,
learned skills (eg riding a bike) are stored in the putamen
