social, health, political imagery through the lens of G J Huba PhD © 2012-2021


Huba’s Integrative Theory of Mind Modeling (Mind Mapping) is comprised of a number of posts in this blog.

The theory specifies styles (parameters) for developing the best types of mind maps (and successor mind models™) for real applications including cognitive decline, dementia, medical practices, healthcare offices, clients, patients, folks in general, physicians, nurses, other healthcare providers, family of patients, family of clients, social work and other social care professions, treatment facilities, medicine, science, experimentation, reporting, and most other applied uses.

The term MindModel™ is a new one coined by G J Huba PhD to describe the highly advanced form of mind mapping developed through the integrated theory. The MindModel is an evolution of the Buzan-style Organic MindMap into a much more useful thinking tool.

The term MindModel is first introduced in Blog Post 20 in this series to represent all of the enhancements of traditional mind maps discussed in Posts 0-19.

    I’m looking for a mind mapping example that will show an autistic patient’s history, diagnosis, symptoms, comorbidities, medications, personal plans/projects and connections between the elements. Have you done or seen one? thanks

      What you are describing is a suite of many mind maps to capture all of the information you would like to track. Should I able to finish the work before dementia makes it impossible for me to continue, I hope to release a general-purpose set of mind map templates adaptable to many different diagnoses and sets of symptoms. If you know of anyone who would like to support the outstanding work, please put them in contact with me.
