Storyboard Text

  • 16 right-handed male London taxi drivers with a mean age of 44 with driving experience of 1.5 years were recruited in order to examine whether structural changes could be detected in the brain of spatial navigation
  • London Cabs
  • Maguire hypothesized that if there were any differences in the brain of those who rely heavily on spatial navigation in their working life, then these differences would be found in their hippocampus
  • MRI scans were performed by measuring soft tissue by exposing the brain to a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed pictures of the brain
  • They found that Taxi drivers had a larger volume of grey matter in their posterior hippocampus than non-taxi drivers.Non-taxi drivers had a larger volume of grey matter in their anterior hippocampus than taxi drivers.
