Stall Catchers is a citizen science application designed at Cornell University to search the brain for stalled blood vessels that may contribute to Alzheimer’s disease. While playing the game, you’ll be looking at real movies of live mouse brain. You will be given one vessel to annotate per movie, and will do so by searching for signs of blood flow or stalls. Stall Catchers is part of EyesOnALZ, a citizen science project from the Human Computation Institute.
