The Memorix Education System
The Memorix Education System was created to boost retention rates of anatomy knowledge. To guarantee the didactic approach to the textbook we recruited many specialists in psychology and andragogy (adult teaching and learning) to cooperate with medical students, anatomists, histologists, embryologists and clinicians to create a novel system of learning.

We consider non-continuous text to be more efficient in the process of studying, memorizing and revising than continuous text. Thus, only the introduction windows contain continuous text, which serve as chapter overviews. In total, about 15 % of the textbook is written in continuous and 85 % in the non-continuous text. The textbook also contains many tables, charts and schemes serving as useful tools for better memory consolidation. Interesting notes and clinical correlations are highlighted in the middle column, which point out the importance of anatomy in every day clinical practice. In this section you can also find mnemonics that simplify learning and support creative thinking.

Steps of Memorix System

  1. Chapter structure
    • schedule your study time and plan your study process
    • look through the chapter headings, its divisions and subdivisions
    • study the introduction windows and briefly look at the pictures and schemes
  2. Study the chapter in detail
    • go through the chapter step by step
    • reread the main sentences, study the main text and pictures carefully and in more detail
    • try to find all the answers to your questions
    • highlight all information which you consider to be important, make notes, redraw pictures and create mind maps (you can be inspired by the schemes and drawings at the end of the chapters)
  3. Interesting things
    • look through the information in the middle column
  4. Clinical notes
    • read the clinical notes and try to understand the correlations between anatomy and clinical medicine
  5. Schemes and charts
    • use the schemes and charts for effective revision and quick orientation
  6. Review questions and figures
    • answer all the questions
    • describe all the pictures presented in the revision part
    • if you are not able to answer the question or describe the picture, return to the chapter and try to find it
  7. Anatomy presenting
    • present the information you learnt to your classmates
    • engage in discussions about the topics
