EyeWire Wiki Table of Contents
EyeWire is a game to map the brain from Sebastian Seung's Lab at MIT. This citizen science human-based computation game challenges players to map 3D neurons in a retina. Eyewire was officially launched on December 10, 2012 and has since grown to over 175,000 players from 145 countries.
EyeWire gameplay advances neuroscience by helping researchers discover how neurons connect to process visual information. Anyone, anywhere can help neuroscientists at MIT develop advanced artificial intelligence and computational technologies for mapping the connectome. You need no scientific background to play. EyeWire works best on high speed internet. It is optimized for use on Google Chrome.

Retinal Cell Classification
The Cell Museum is a newly released visualization platform that showcases retinal cell types reconstructed by EyeWire. In addition to providing our own classification for these neurons, we include stratification profile data for each cell. Detailed annotation of cell names can be found in the Database.
In conjunction with the Cell Museum, we are developing a database of retinal ganglion cells in an attempt to create a comprehensive catalog of all neuronal cell types in the retina. Our hope is to collaborate with experts in the field to generate a resource that unifies current classification efforts and can be referenced for future research.
