Visual = Memory
The human eye uses cells called cones and rods located in the retina to absorb light. Cones see coloured light (c for coloured) and rods see darkness and light. The human eye has many more cones than rods and that is why we are so much more responsive to colour than we are to black and white. To aid your memory it helps to use as many colours as possible in your notes. You might like to get a 4 or 10 colour pen or a packet of gel pens to make your notes really colourful.
In addition, the brain has two separate circuits call the visuospatial sketchpad and the phonological loop. Fancy names but this means that pictures and words are handled separately in the brain. This means you can absorb a picture and a word at the same time. You can use this to your advantage but adding pictures to your notes.
You can use the note taking techniques we have already discussed or use fantastic techniques like mind maps. Click to learn more about mind maps.
