We’re hanging out in the Anterior Lateral Motor Cortex (ALM) for our newest challenge, Mouse-ALM-08. Give it a try as we head towards the weekend, and remember the following challenges are set to close soon:
Mouse-ALM-06: Friday, 5PM Pacific
Mouse-ALM-07: Monday, 12 noon Pacific

Our partners at the Allen Institute of Brain Science have let us know that there is no current gold standard for this neuron, so we're eager to see everyone's efforts.

Hi everybody! We’ve heard from scientist alexh this afternoon, and he has let us know he dropped by earlier today and left plenty of comments for us to ponder and work with on our currently running challenges. If you’re looking to pick up some extra points, check those comments and see if you can assist. He is estimating we still have a fair bit to go on these, so it’s a safe bet we won’t be closing these until midweek at the earliest.

In related news, we are currently working on some updates to our website, as well as gameplay improvements and hope to roll those out soon. One of these important changes will allow us to add a scrollbar to the side of the challenges list, meaning we can add even newer challenges while we finish up others.

As always, we look forward to your thoughts on challenge volume when that happens over in our forums.
