Mind Maps and the Left and Right Brain

At this point it is useful to consider how recent research into the brain adds strength to the points raised so far. In light of the fact, as already outlined, that the brain handles information better if the information is designed to 'slot in', consider the left and right brain research of Roger Sperry and Robert Ornstein. This research alone would lead you to conclude that a note taking and thought-organisation technique designed to satisfy the needs of the whole brain would have to include not only words, numbers, order, sequence, and lines, but also colour, images, dimension, symbols, and visual rhythms etc: in other words Mind Maps.
