During the last decade, computer vision and machine learning have revolutionized the world in every way possible. Deep Learning is a sub field of machine learning that has shown remarkable results in every field especially biomedical field due to its ability of handling huge amount of data. Its potential and ability have also been applied and tested in the detection of brain tumor using MRI images for effective prognosis and has shown remarkable performance. The main objective of this research work is to present a detailed critical analysis of the research and findings already done to detect and classify brain tumor through MRI images in the recent past. This analysis is specifically beneficial for the researchers who are experts of deep learning and are interested to apply their expertise for brain tumor detection and classification. As a first step, a brief review of the past research papers using Deep Learning for brain tumor classification and detection is carried out. Afterwards, a critical analysis of Deep Learning techniques proposed in these research papers (2015-2020) is being carried out in the form of a Table. Finally, the conclusion highlights the merits and demerits of deep neural networks. The results formulated in this paper will provide a thorough comparison of recent studies to the future researchers, along with the idea of the effectiveness of various deep learning approaches. We are confident that this study would greatly assist in advancement of brain tumor research.
