What is an ATMEGA328P

I'm about to start my first robot using Arduino, and I wonder what that long rectangular chip is. I later find out it is called the ATMEGA328P. What is it? Is it like a data storage for the code? If not, what does it do?

Sorry I didn't realise you were a part of the problem

Oh yeah, I was dead-smack in the middle of the problem for most of my twenties... Now it seems, I am in the catagory of "don't trust anyone over the age of 30"... 

In short, I used to be with "it"...   ...but then they changed what "it" was...

im just glad to know i wasnt the only one who read maplin catalogues to learn the basics before i got the internet
