Neuro Tracker

Neuro Tracker graphs real-time discussions about the neurosciences happening on Twitter. The project is designed to demonstrate the influence of the neurosciences on a multitude of social issues and to allow users to stay up-to-date on a fast-changing neuro-news landscape. By watching the graphs grow, users can get a sense of how often words like "cognition" and "neuroscience" are mentioned on Twitter at each moment, and by clicking on the bar graphs, users can read the individual tweets. The project also automatically displays a real-time stream of tweets about the brain, highlighting the word's prominence.
