The Correct Answer is c. Hippocampus
Hippocampus region of your brain is responsible for both short- and long-term memory, as well as spatial navigation. In just one or two drinks, alcohol damages the brain and inhibits most of the processes occurring in the hippocampus. In fact, drinking while driving is dangerous because of the hippocampal function of spatial navigation.
