Great MindMapping and Brainstorming Tools

 For those of my Gentle Readers, who wish to indulge their creativity, here are some Mindmapping and Brainstorming tools.

For a really cool graphic representation of mindmaps on neuroscience, visit  the Nerdy NeuroGirl's pearlmaps.

Pearlmaps are very cool mindmaps.  They use semantic web technology to link ideas and have a visual engine to display the semantic links.  Unlike other mindmaps where the data is locked in the software, Pearlmaps allow you to import and export your data in the form of rdf files that are used by semantic technology.

I have made my own pearl tree, here, for sites related to the Journey Through The Cortex.

It is taking me to some pretty interesting sites.  For example, if you click on the Psychology link, you can get to a link for "how the brain sees your body", a description of the cortical hormunculus.
Will be poking about more in my pearl trees.
