Top 200 terms in cognitive neuroscience according to neurosynth

Tonight I was playing around with some of the top features in neurosynth (the searchable terms with the highest number of studies containing that term). You can find the list here, just sort by the number of studies. I excluded the top 3 terms which are boring (e.g. “image”, “response”, and “time”)  and whose extremely high weights would mess up the wordle. I then created a word-cloud weighted so that the size reflects the number of studies for each term.

Here are the top 200 terms sized according to number times reported in neurosynth’s 5809 indexed fMRI studies:

Pretty neat! These are the 200 terms the neurosynth database has the most information on, and is a pretty good overview of key concepts and topics in our field! I am sure there is something useful for everyone in there😀
