„Birds in which spatial memory is particularly important“

—  Eric R. Kandel American neuropsychiatrist 1929
Context: Birds in which spatial memory is particularly important—those that store food at a large number of sites, for example—have larger hippocampuses than other birds.... London taxi drivers have a larger hippocampus than others the same age.... the size of their hippocampus continues to increase with time on the job.
