Overview

Mind Maps In Pathology

"Mind Maps" offer a simple and visual way to record the main points of a subject and show their inter-relationships. Key words are presented in the context of learning pathways that connect to form maps of each topic. The topics encompass every aspect of pathology—from basic principles to disease mechanisms and pathology related to specific body systems.

• Facilitates study with easy-to-remember key words and visual representations of their inter-relationships.

• Promotes a fuller understanding of how concepts relate to one another, making it easier to retain the material and priming the brain to process further information on each topic (the "semantic prime" effect).

• Encompasses every aspect of pathology—from basic principles to disease mechanisms and pathology related to specific body systems.
