  • Michele Harrison, Lecturer, Department of Pathology, University College Dublin Medical School, Dublin, Ireland

"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.
