Transcript of Mind Mapping
Tony Buzan developed this technique
From Sensory Memory to
Short Term Memory (STM) to
Long Term Memory (LTM)
This technique uses our working memory because we are "working" with new information
This helps us move info. into out LTM
We are not always conscious of the movement of info. into our LTM
Our LTM is a neural network of semantic categories as seen in your text
This picture represents the way neuro-psychologists believe we store LTM
It is easier to recall procedural LTMs and episodic memories
We have read that encoding is not always simple and may require significant effort.
We now know that our recognition and recall of images and pictures is better than words
So essentially if we combine words with images and colors we are much more likely to recognize and recall semantic memories
Mind mapping, in essence, creates more pathways to a memory which can serve to stimulate recall of that memory
Use Emphasis and Association
Use a central image, plus secondary images throughout your map
Line length should equal word length
Make central lines thicker
An Example of a Mind Map
Be clear: use one printed word per line
Connect lines to lines
How to use our sensory memory, STM and LTM more efficiently
When we use our working memory info. is more likely to move into out LTM
3 Box Model
Part of our STM is Working Memory
Mind Mapping and Memory
Remember the study presented in the text about High School classmates?
We also know that recall is more difficult because we are usually trying to recall only words
Even with this research available we study and take notes only with words
With Mind Mapping we can correlate semantic memories with episodic and procedural memories through images
A significant body of neuro-psych. research proves that recognition and recall of pictures and images is much higher than words
Mind Mapping requires us to be more intentional about our encoding
It increases the likelihood that we will move info. which may be hard to encode (semantic memories) from Sensory to STM to LTM
Mind Mapping helps us become more intentional about this movement
It is almost identical to the Mind Mapping Format
