Mozak is a new citizen science discovery game in development about neuroscience. It has been developed by the Center for Game Science at the University of Washington with collaboration from the Allen Center for Brain Science. Humans greatly outperform computers at tracing neurons that have delicate and highly branched structures that your eyes will distinguish far better. Scientists hope to discover new ideas that can be applied to ongoing research in the field.
From April 10th to April 15th, Citizen Science Games was hosting the @IamCitSci Twitter account. The whole week was dedicated to games and science. We storified the week in different episodes, in case you missed […]
Global neuroscience projects are producing big data at an unprecedented rate that informatic and artificial intelligence (AI) analytics simply cannot handle. Online games, like Foldit, Eterna, and Eyewire and now a new neuroscience game, Mozak—are fueling a people-powered research science (PPRS) revolution, […]
