Hi everyone! As much as we hate to be all “short notice”, we’re going to need to pop the site offline around 11am Pacific Time (aka in about an hour) for approximately 5-10 minutes. Great opportunity to take a stretch, refill your morning beverage of choice (or later, timezones and all considering) and dive back in fresh to your neuron tracing when we’re back. Have you taken our survey yet? We would love to close it tomorrow but our sample size is pretty small and we’d love your thoughts on our challenges (it’s four questions). Thanks to everyone who has added thoughts so far!
Good news, everyone. We have a Human Temporal Cortex challenge for you to puzzle over, freshly posted today. The temporal cortex is credited for many functions including, but likely not limited to sensory processing (visual and auditory).
It will be short and sweet to fix some things that came up post-update. We are aiming for about five minutes of downtime, around 9am Pacific time.
What can you do during the downtime? We're glad you asked.
You can complete this survey about our challenges.
Follow us on Twitter. Say hi, even.
Show us some love and follow on Facebook.
Strategize about Mouse-ALM-08 (pictured), closing tomorrow.
Refresh a lot. (it is okay if you don't do this, but we understand the temptation)
Heads up: Mouse-ALM-08 is closing tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12PM Pacific time. At that time we are aiming to release a new challenge.
Additionally, we have a new survey about challenges. Please complete this survey within the next week, as it is scheduled to close on Tuesday, March 21. Completing this survey will help us fine tune our challenges and provide necessary input to our developers and scientists.
