Hippocampus: Mind Hacks Catches A Taxi

The excellent neuroblog, Mind Hacks, has a post today that includes discussion about a program of research examining the hippocampal structures of professional navigators (e.g., taxi drivers) - research with fascinating neuropsychological results.

The Mind Hacks post can be read at: post.

A link to a .pdf of one of these publications can be found at: London Taxi Drivers and Bus Drivers: A Structural MRI and Neuropsychological Analysis. I am off to read this paper right now, which was published in 2006 in the journal Hippocampus.
