Woah! Does this support the notion that memories are not stored in the brain?

If you're a flatworm, yes.

Worms don't really have a brain, so by definition yes. For humans I don't think it suggests much.

There are neurons in the muscles and guts and heart if memory serves

But well, this isn't where you store your holidays memories

wait, do people think that PEOPLE have their memories stored somewhere else? Who thinks this besides you? Where do you suppose they are?

edit:saw about muscle memory or whatever, but I'm talking real ones.

Some have suggested it. The brain is still very enigmatic and not well understood. We have the best understanding of sections relating to optics and motor control, but where memories are stored remains more elusive. Thanks to brain imaging we know which areas of the brain are used for memory retrieval. Interestingly the same parts are used when actually experiencing something, when remembering it, or when imagining it (even if it never happened).
