Concepts are the keystones in the architecture of our thinking.
Let’s create road-maps for concepts.

Let’s just say that studying can be fun too. Preparing concept map has been my thing always. So, now I am here to share my view and maps on physiology/medical topics with the world out there.
A Physiology Professor by profession I have seen students struggling with the basic concepts of the subject and almost everyone scrambling for notes (self-made, borrowed from seniors or copied from a fellow classmate). But I have found that more than so called ‘notes’, you need a clear concept – hence the concept maps.
WHAT IS A CONCEPT MAP?
It is basically a conceptual diagram that suggests or compiles a knowledge or information in form of a arrow diagram or a flow chart. In other words it explains and organizes a complex information in an easy to comprehend diagram or chart. A very useful and organized way to understand, acquire & memorize concepts.
ADVANTAGES OF CONCEPT MAPS –
- Simplifies understanding of an complex phenomenon/ subject.
- helps in quicker learning. You can finish a bigger chapter in lesser time.
- easy to remember and reproduce in exams.
- creates memory maps(with less confusions of course!!)
So, see you all later in my subsequent posts where I will share my ‘concept-maps’ mostly related to Physiology, medicine & maybe everything else in due course of time. keep me posted on your view on the same.
