Crowdsourcing neuroscience research with a game

ga('send', 'event', 'Gaming', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

We have seen a number of unusual innovation in neuroscience, such as a device that helps owners understand what their dogs are thinking and a system that allows people to 3D print their thoughts. Ultimately, more useful innovations in neuroscience will depend on a better understanding of the connections between the 80-90 billion neurons in the human brain. Although existing technology enables the creation of images of individual neurons, it requires human input in order to trace and classify the different shapes of each nerve cell. This is because human eyes are much better than computers at distinguishing the delicate and highly branched structures of the neurons, and at inferring detailed structures from faint and often incomplete data.
