The Consensus: How do we crowdsource reconstructions and determine what is the most accurate reconstruction?
The Cell Museum: 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.
Retinal Neuron Classification: 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.
There are many ways to get involved in EyeWire and neuroscience research in general besides playing the game. Here are a list of options:
Work with us: EyeWire is always on the lookout for new faces to join our team. EyeWire is open to collaborations; our previous collaborators include Oculus Rift, Microsoft, and EdX, among others. Please email us if interested.
Software: Help and troubleshooting for any program used by/for Eyewire.

Dank der Zusammenarbeit mit der KT Corporation war EyeWire in der Lage, 245 Neuronen in einem Bereich von 200x200 µm des EyeWire Datensatzes in ungefähr 9 Monaten zu rekonstruieren. Die Abbildungen zeigen verschiedene Arten von Ganglienzellen der Netzhaut innerhalb der Ganglienzellschicht (GCL – ganglion cell layer), die in diesem Zeitraum kartiert wurden.
Blaue Streifen sind Blutgefäße, die sich durch den Datensatz ziehen.
