Map 3D structure of neurons to advance brain science.
The brain is a complicated organ to understand, but EyeWire’s games are not! You can map the brain, along with 200,000 people from all over the world, in collaboration with the Seung Lab at Princeton, and with no scientific background needed. It’s fun, and appeals to traditional gamers, but it’s also helping to advance serious research. By mapping the 3D structure of neurons, you can help neuroscience researchers advance knowledge of how neurons connect and network to process information. The game is like a 3D puzzle where you are challenged to map branches of a neuron by reconstructing them with the help of artificial intelligence. You gain points and eventually end up on the leaderboard where you can earn badges, and swag too. If you’re good enough you can climb the ranks to Advanced Player, Scout, and the prestigious “Order of the Scythe.” EyeWire is a great way to help advance science and even make new friends around the world along the way.
