One neuron at a time!

These guys have embarked on the difficult task of mapping the brain. To do so they have Artificial Intelligence colouring in the thinnest possible slices of brain matter of a rat, and colouring in the individual neurons seen through an electron microscope. They map into a big cube, that looks like the inside of a spagetti can, mapped and coloured slice by slice.

Absolutely insane problem to solve – so they crowd source help! Sign up and you can be colouring in neurons in 2 minutes. It’s actually a pretty fun little game.
