16 right handed taxi drivers were chosen.
MRI's were compared with 50 right handed non-taxi drivers.
Data from the MRI was measured with VBM and pixel counting
VBM was used to see the densiry of grey matter in the brain. Pixel counting counts the pixels in the brain to calculate the area of the hippocampus
The posterior hippocampi of taxi drivers was larger and the anterior were smaller.
VBM showed that the volume of the right posterior hippocampi correlated with the time spent being a taxi driver.
Posterior hippocampus is involved when previously learned spatial information is used.
Anterior hippocampal region is more involved during the encoding of new environmental layouts.
The development of the hippocampi is correlated with taxi drivers in England.
