Storyboard Text

  • Aim: use whole brain magnetic-resonance imaging to visualize learning-induced plasticity in the brains of volunteers who have learned to juggle.
  • We believe that the jugglers will show a transient and selective structural change in brain areas
  • Brain Scan 1
  • Group 2: Non-Jugglers
  • We all do not know how to juggle
  • Group1: Jugglers
  • The juggler group were given 3 months to learn a classic three-ball cascade juggling routine.
  • Group 2: Non-Jugglers
  • 3 months later
  • There are signs of no change in this group
  • Brain Scan 2
  • We used voxel-based morphometry, a whole-brain technique, to see changes in regions in grey and white matter by averaging results of the volunteers.
  • 3 months later
  • Brain Scan 3
  • This method is based on high-resolution, threedimensional imaging, and is designed to find significant regional differences
  • none of the jugglers attempted better their skills
  • Group1: Jugglers
  • Implications: -learning-induced cortical plasticity is also reflected at a structural level - Juggling and the perception and spatial anticipation of moving objects is a stronger stimulus for structural plasticity in the visual areas than in the motor areas 
  • Results must be compared with histological data to identify the structural basis at a microscopic level
