“My Maps are visual aids that help us organize and process information. As a visual learner myself, I’m a big fan of them. Colors, images, symbols and words are incorporated into these maps to help our brains make connections or his mind. mapping.com puts it mind mapping is a highly effective way of getting information in and out of your brain. Mind Mapping literally maps out your ideas. Mind Mapping converts a long list of information into a memorable and highly organized diagram that works with your brain’s natural way of visualizing things.
One simple way to understand a mind map is by comparing it to a map of a city. The city center represents the main idea, the roads leading from the center represent the key thoughts in your process. The secondary roads or branches represent your secondary thoughts and so on.

Mind Maps bring together the left hemisphere of the brain responsible for words logic and numbers, and the right hemisphere responsible for images color, space and rhythm. The more our right and left brain work together, the more our brain can work at optimum efficiency. One particular study found that mind mapping enhances information processing, helping to improve memory function. In one specific example, the recall of facts by medical students improved by 10% when they use Mind Maps. Mind Mapping is also beneficial in childhood development.
