A journalist has reached out to us wanting to write a magazine article on Mozak players over 50. If you are over 50 and are willing to speak with a journalist about your motivation and experiences playing Mozak, please feel free to reach out to me at smortier@cs.washington.edu and I’ll connect you with them. Thanks and happy tracing!

Hi players, we released an update to the website and application that will allow you to view the gold standard reconstruction created from scientists at AIBS. Some of them have incorporated the work you have been doing! You can use these traces to get a better sense of the shape of each neuron and how the structure of axon differs from dendrite.

To view them, go to the web page for a particular neuron, there will be a section to view the most recent consensus reconstruction or gold standard if they are available. If a gold standard is available, there is a link to load it in the actual game.

Here are some gold standard traces currently up for viewing:

Mouse-V1-05

Mouse-V1-06

Mouse-V1-07

Mouse-V1-08

Mouse-V1-09

Mouse-V1-10

Mouse-V1-11

Mouse-V1-12

Mouse-V1-13

Mouse-V1-14

Mouse-V1-15

Mouse-V1-16

Mouse-V1-17

This list will be updated throughout the day as more results get posted.

Hi players, tomorrow morning we will be releasing a new feature that will allow you view the gold-standard trace reconstructions that were made by scientists at AIBS with the game. Some of these reconstructions incorporated work that you may have done. In addition, we will also be adding a mini view of the consensus traces generated from players as part of the webpage for each neuron. Stay tuned for more details tomorrow.

While releasing these updates, the application and web site may become unresponsive for several seconds at around 9am PDT. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi players, we will be releasing some bug fixes at 3:30pm today. At this time the site might become unavailable for a few seconds, apologies for the inconvienence.

Latest updates can be viewed here.

As a preview, we will soon be releasing a feature that will allow you to see the 3D model of the gold standard trace the scientists at AIBS use in their research. You may find it particularly useful in observing how axons can differ across various neurons.
