It is a diagram of semantic representation of the connections between portions of information. Presenting these connections in a radial, non-linear graphical manner, it stimulates a reflective approach to any task of organization of data, eliminating the initial stimulus to establish an intrinsic conceptual framework appropriate or relevant to the specific job. A mind map is similar to a semantic network or cognitive model but without formal kinds of links used in constraints. The elements are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts and are arranged in groupings, branches or areas. The graphic formulation can help memory. Background it is known that since the invention of writing, has been the product of our studies about the observed world, with the purpose of analyze situations, communicate, solve problems, express your creative thinking, share their findings, disseminate experiences or simply somehow translate our learnings.
The techniques used have been varied: lists, lines, words, numbers, prayers. While these systems have had their unquestionable usefulness, today is known, thanks to recent research, they all employ only a part of the cerebral cortex, preventing the brain to establish associations of stimulate creativity and enhance memory. Anyone has had the perception of improving knowledge of an issue with a graphic aid. The main elements are visible, as if they were discrete objects, and relations between them are visible, can be seen with the naked eye. It is, then, quite old method of trying to move a mass of complex information to a scheme or graphical model, (which repeat their essential elements and its structure) to thus be able to understand it better. By luck computing development us has provided new ways of displaying information allowing to interact with gigantic amounts of data intractable, or unfriendly, if we analysed them with traditional graphic techniques. For decades researchers have deepened the task of improving and enhancing the ability to learn and remember.
