#sfn2014 by the numbers

wordcloud

SfN is really just a lot of words. I downloaded the PDFs of the abstract booklets, textified, tokenized, and counted them. Here is what I found.

The most common word is ‘the’. The most common non-common word is ‘neurons’.

Here are the most enriched and most…deficient? words for each session (so that you know what to go to, and what to skip out on)*

*I modified this list a bit. For instance, the most enriched word in the nanosymposium is ‘nanosymposium’. The most enriched words for the symposiums were place names. Those types of words were ignored for the sake of an interesting list.
