In time for the long weekend (Monday is an official University of Washington observed holiday), and due to the closure of Mouse-ALM-01 for investigation and troubleshooting, we present Mouse-V1-11. As many of you can already guess, this one comes straight from the primary visual cortex.

For context, we’ve been provided this image by scientist “alexh” (Allen Institute for Brain Science) that shows the area of this brain where this neuron is compared to the last two challenges from the Anterior Lateral Motor Cortex (ALM).

We’ve been made aware of some current issues surrounding Mouse-ALM-01 not loading properly. Thank you everyone for the reports, and as we’ve discovered this challenge presents a reliably reproducable case that we can use to debug and hopefully fix this sporadic issue, we have closed this puzzle for now.

Please note, if you do any more tracing on whatever slice of ALM-01 you have open right now, it’ll still count for score.

We are looking into it and will get that up and going again as soon as possible. In the meantime, we recommend trying out Mouse-ALM-02.

We’re moving on to a new area of the brain for our next mouse neuron: the Anterior Lateral Motor Cortex (ALM). Feel free to give Mouse-ALM-01 a try now.

Mouse-V1-10 is currently scheduled to close at the end of the day on Wednesday, January 11. You’ll probably want to switch over to Mouse-ALM-01 around 5pm, Pacific if you are still working on boosting your score for that challenge and helping us address our recent scientist comments.

Additionally, we’re looking for your input on scores, your preferred playing style, and more over in the forums (available via the link or by clicking on the “community” tab above).
