Storyboard Text

  • 16 right handed taxi drivers were chosen. 
  • London
  • 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.
  • Lab
  • 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.
