Learning anatomy with a coloring book will not solve all of your problems because there are several challenges associated with it. No-one is denying the fact that coloring anatomical structures is fun. You also learn, create relationships and memorize in the process. However, as easy as it sounds, transforming a white space between two lines into a yellow one requires time. It often requires a bigger input of time compared to the benefits it offers if a coloring book is the sole method of learning. The problem lies in the fact that it lacks sufficient explanations and details to help you learn and understand. For certain topics, the detailed text that follows each topic lacks the necessary medical knowledge for making you a competent physician or even lacks sufficient descriptions to help your understand.
An anatomy coloring book also has a backbone, called a coloring system, onto which everything is constructed. To follow it, you basically need to fill the outline of a structure and its respective term with the same color in order to relate them. The black and white images can be matched by a numbering and/or lettering system accompanying both the terms and structures. Alternatively, the structures are labelled. A second aspect which you need to do to follow the coloring system is to use different colors for different sets of terms-structures.
Stimulates Both Cerebral Hemispheres, Apart from effectively combating stress and anxiety, picking up the crayons also stimulates both the left and right cerebral hemispheres of our brain. Gloria Martinez Ayala believes that coloring manages to trigger a number of regions in both the right and left hemispheres of our brain. “The action involves both logic, by which we color forms, and creativity, when mixing and matching colors. This incorporates the areas of the cerebral cortex involved in vision and fine motor skills [coordination necessary to make small, precise movements].” says Ayala.
Enhances Focus and Creativity,Stressful situations and constant work pressure that we face on a daily basis often affects our focus and creative skills adversely. Filling in intricate patterns, while keeping in mind suitable color combinations, not only spurs our creative skills but also helps us improve our focus.
Facts are stored better if they come in more than one way so coloring benefits both visual and kinesthetic learners by automatically providing a second door for information to enter. While the advantages outlined above are extremely important, the following one should not be overlooked. Coloring is easy and fun. Anatomy, although interesting, can become dull and boring if you only use one method of learning every single time and you constantly repeat it. Coloring partially eliminates the mind numbing text, essays and explanations required to describe and understand anatomical structures.
Theresa Citerella, a student of art therapy at the Lesley University, was quoted saying that a lot of her classmates use coloring books in class to focus on their lessons. Similarly, Theresa also states that fidgety clients attending therapy sessions tend to ask for coloring books to concentrate and participate in group discussions. To achieve these positive results, people have started using coloring apps, such as the Mandala Coloring, on their smartphones and tablets. Coloring apps help you engage in this creative activity on the go.
