Brain research at the TU Delft

TU Delft offers a wealth of brain-related research. TU Delft Brain Research Map contains an overview of terms that are extracted from brain-related TU Delft publications over time. The map is obtained by using an optimisation algorithm that visualises terms based on frequency of appearance within the abstracts and titles of accepted papers. By clicking on the terms you can have a look at all papers (title and abstract) related to this specific term.

Overview of TU Delft brain research related terms:

As a result of this data analysis, all papers are automatically categorised in four clusters. Roughly speaking, they represent the four main areas of research:

  • Blue: Imaging (related to MRI, EEG, etc.)
  • Green: Force (related to robot, rehabilitation, etc.)
  • Red: Artificial Neural Networks (related to artificial intelligence, etc.)
  • Yellow: Disease (related to dementia, Alzheimer, age, etc.)

These four areas represent activities of the TU Delft in the field of modelling, understanding and treating the brain, and some other research activities that are inspired by or benefit from the brain research.

Overview of TU Delft brain research related terms related to average publication per year:

In this view, the overlay colors show the average publication year of the publications belonging to each term. The terms represented with hot colors have a relatively more recent average publication year, compared to the terms represented with cold colors.

Overview of TU Delft brain research related terms related to average normalized citations:

In this view, the overlay colors show the average normalized citation of the publications belonging to each term. The normalized citation score of a publication is obtained by dividing the number of citations of the publication by the average number of citations of all of the publications published in the same year. The terms represented with hot colors have a relatively more average normalized citation, compared to the terms represented with cold colors.
