Storyboard Text

  • Are the brains of London taxi drivers somehow different as a result of exceptional training? 
  • 16 right-handed male taxi-drivers were compared with the MRI cans of 50 right-handed male non-taxi drivers. 
  • Complete the “Knowledge” test in order to obtain a licence for at least 1.5 years. 
  • Is there a relationship between the number of years driving a taxi and the anatomy of the human brain? 
  • Data from the MRI was measured using two different techniques: voxel-based morphometry and pixel counting. Voxel-based morphology: Measured the density of grey matter in the brain. Pixel counting: Counted pixels in the images provided by the MRI scans in order to calculate the area of the hippocampus. 
  •  The posterior hippocampus of the taxi drivers were significantly larger relative to those of control subjects and the anterior hippocampus. Voxel-based morphology: The volume of the right posterior hippocampus correlated with the amount if time spent as a taxi driver: The hippocampus may change in response to environmental demands.
