    Key Features

    • Facilitates study with easy-to-remember key words and visual representations of their inter-relationships.
    • Promotes a fuller understanding of how concepts relate to one another, making it easier to retain the material and priming the brain to process further information on each topic (the "semantic prime" effect).
    • Encompasses every aspect of pathology—from basic principles to disease mechanisms and pathology related to specific body systems.
