Because most readers of this book have probably not used a coloring book for decades (except for those who have small children), it may at first appear infantile for adults to be asked to work with colored pencils, pencil sharpener and an eraser to stimulate interest in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. However, this may just be a brilliant concept of mnemotechniques applied to one of the most complicated subjects in medical science. How one is able to recall features of the brain is of little importance, if one merely remembers “I’ve painted it yellow, therefore its name is …” (Weber).
