It is time for our first human neuron in Mozak, appropriately titled: Human-MTG-01. This neuron is from the Middle Temporal Gyrus. According to the DNA Learning Center, the middle and inferior temporal gyri are involved in cognitive processes, including semantic memory, language, visual perception, and sensory integration.

Additionally, Mouse-V1-15 will be disappearing (for processing from our scientists) around noon Pacific time on Monday, February 6.
Excellent tracing, everyone. We’re happy to announce Mouse-V1-14 is almost complete and will be leaving the challenge list around noon Pacific time (Mozak time). Be sure to check back for our newest challenge once Mouse-V1-14 closes. Our newest challenge features a new type of neuron we haven’t seen yet.
Now presenting Mouse-V1-16, a mouse neuron located in the primary visual cortex. Feel free to provide your best traces upon this mouse-terpiece of a challenge, available now.
We’re hanging out in the primary visual cortex for this next duo of challenges. We appreciate your hard work on the most recent batch and hope to have feedback to share soon from our scientists. In the meantime, you can access our new challenges here.
