Curation and knowledge dissemination of the computational neuroscience field requires many unique considerations as it utilizes language, methods, and ideas from diverse areas including biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, medicine, and computer science. In order to effectively facilitate curation and knowledge dissemination for the computational neuroscience community we must first develop a robust representation of its existing literature. Using unsupervised topic modeling approaches, a metadata tagging schema was developed for computational neuroscience literature from ModelDB (a repository of computational neuroscience models), and compared to that of a larger neuroscience corpus. This analysis shows key differences in the types of discoveries and knowledge addressed in neuroscience and its computational subdiscipline, and gives insight into how an automated question answering system might differ between the two.
