In EyeWire, a gamer is given a cube with a partially reconstructed neuron branch stretching through it, called the "seed". On the right side of the screen there is a black and white image of the cross sections of neurons. A player learns to "color" inside a gray outline of a single neuron branch, which usually starts on one side of the cube, and exits out of its opposite side. This generates volumetric reconstructions, branch by branch. Multiple players map each cube and their work is compared. Advanced players, Scouts and Scythes, oversee the work of the global community. These players have the power to extend branches and remove mergers.
