Storyboard Text

  •  16 right­-handed male London taxi drivers vs   50 right-­handed males who did not drive taxis
  • TAXI
  • Participants needed to have taken the "Knowledge" test and have a license for at least 1.5 years
  • Had to take an MRI and Voxel­based morphology was used to measure the density of grey matter in the brain
  • Results: posterior hippocampi of taxi drivers were significantly  larger to those of control subjects
  • Anterior hippocampi were significantly smaller and the volume of the right posterior hippocampi correlated with the amount of time spent as a taxi driver
  • I'm a sea horse
  •  The posterior hippocampus seems to be involved when previously learned spatial information is used, the anterior hippocampal region may be more involved during the encoding of new environmental layouts.
