“Your brain is an extraordinary, super-powered processor capable of boundless and interconnected thoughts: if you know how to harness it, studying will cease to be a fraught and stressful exercise, and will be fast, easy and fruitful.”
Tony Buzan, Inventor of Mind Maps
Mind Map® was developed by Tony Buzan in 1970 after reviewing research on psychology of learning and remembering. According to Buzan, the mind map is an expression of radiant thinking and is therefore a function of the human mind. It is a powerful graphic technique which provides a universal key to unlocking the potential of the brain.
What is a Mind Map®?
A Mind Map® is a powerful graphic technique which provides a universal key to unlock the potential of the brain. It harnesses the full range of cortical skills - word, image, number, logic, rhythm, colour and spatial awareness - in a single, uniquely powerful manner. In so doing, it gives you the freedom to roam the infinite expanses of your brain.
Mind Maps® act as the 'Swiss Army Knife of the brain' allowing you to improve and accelerate your learning and thinking skills.
Our brains are divided into the left and right cortex. The left side is dedicated to tasks involving order, logic, words, lists, numbers and analysis, the right side deals with rhythm, colour, imagination and daydreaming. If we want to improve memory, learning and thinking skills we have to use the whole brain.
The Mind Map® can be applied to every aspect of life where improved learning and clearer thinking will enhance human performance. Originated in 1970 by Tony Buzan, Mind Maps® are now used by millions of people around the world - from the very young to the very old - whenever they wish to use there brains more effectively.
Similar to a road map, a Mind Map® will:
