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 135,000 players from 150 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.
