Description

Ever arrived home with almost no recollection of how you got there? Quite often we find our way around our planet with astonishing ease, almost not conscious about how we do it. The human mind is an incredible tool for navigation but how does it actually work? In this excellent program, psychologist Dr. Eleanor Maguire discusses her seminal study 'Navigation-Related Structural Changes in the Hippocampus of Taxi Drivers', looking at its context and aims, groundbreaking methods, surprising findings and what they suggest about navigation, memory and the plasticity of the human brain. This DVD includes navigation footage and original scans from the study.
