Lets check out how being a London taxi driver affects neural plasticity in the hippocampus!
Ayo! I am doing an experiment. I need 15 male right handed taxi drivers which have been in the business for more than 1.5 years.
This will be a correlational study. We will compare MRI scans from taxi drivers and non-taxi drivers and compare their hippocampus via two MRI methods.
Come in and get your scans done!
Wow! The posterior Hippocampi of taxi drivers is bigger than the one of the non-taxi drivers! As well, the volume of the right posterior Hippocampi increases as years working as a taxi driver increases!
