Hi players, as this weeks challenge draws to a close we are going to be greatly shortening the time the first consensus pass finishes on a neuron. Since we have an increase in tracers thanks to our friends at the Allen Institute joining us, we hope this speeds up the time it takes for a neuron to be completed. To make up for this, we will be releasing more neurons throughout the course of tonight and tomorrow. Thank you to everyone that is participating, let see how many neurons we can complete this week!

Now’s your chance to find out!

Scores will be updated on this page:

Hi players, a while back we released a feature that changed the way images were stored and downloaded. This was needed to make the application compatible with future data requirements, unfortunately there were some issues with that first release. We believe were finally able to sort out those issues. Please let us know if you encounter any new performance issues or slowdowns while the image data is being downloaded.

Full list of changes can be found in the changelogs here.
