EyeWire Wiki Table of Contents
EyeWire is a game where you map the 3D structure of neurons. By playing EyeWire, you help map the retinal connectome and contribute to the neuroscience research conducted by Sebastian Seung's Computational Neuroscience Lab at MIT. The connectome is a map of all the connections between cells in the brain. Rather than mapping and entire brain, we’re starting with a retina.
