Mindmaps (c) are still the rage. Tony Buzan is rolling in wads of cash, and rightly so. Properly used mindmaps can be exceptionally useful study aids.
Today I want to look at what's Good
1. They coincide with the way the brain patterns its information
2. They chunk information
more successfully, enabling the brain to remember more information in working memory, thus enabling it greater capacity to eventually drill it into long-term memory.
3. This chunking also enables the brain to create patterns
with the information in and of itself.
4. They are visually exciting
! They stimulate our large Occipital Lobes in our brains!
