Taxi Driver Brains

Going through some old links I found this, UCL’s Hugo Spiers talking about taxi drivers’ brain activity during their movement around the city.  Demonstrates the use of landmarks and salient features in movement around the city, as well as providing some quantitative evidence for route-choice patterns.

For those interested there a BBC article on this work here, and the full paper (for those with access) here.
