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 an entire brain, we’re starting with a retina. By joining EyeWire, you can help map connections between retinal neurons. This information advances neuroscience research on how the retina functions in visual perception. You also help the EyeWire team, based at MIT, develop computational technologies for mapping the connectome.
