London taxi drivers are famous for their knowledge about the streets, the many locations and the driving directions they memorize. They train their brain to do routing algorithms. They are also tested for this before they get a taxi license. As a result of this, their hippocampus (a part of the brain) is enlarged in comparison to other people.
