This new puzzle is a fresh mouse neuron from the primary visual cortex. As always, thank you to our scientists at the Allen Institute for Brain Science for providing this challenge. Get started on it now!
Hi everybody! Just a heads up to remind everyone that here at Mozak headquarters (the University of Washington), we are officially on holiday this upcoming Thursday and Friday, November 24 and 25. During this time we will be monitoring Mozak and responding to emergency issues, but otherwise you can expect likely delays to responses for posted issues until Monday morning (Pacific time). Rest assured when we are back from the weekend, the entire team will be ready to tackle all the great bugs and suggestions you have been posting for us in our community forums. For those of you also celebrating this weekend, we wish you safe travels where appropriate - and of course, a fantastic weekend to all.

Welcome Foldit players (and other newcomers, but especially if you’re joining us during Foldit’s current downtime). We wanted to give a quick boost to this recent post about neurons vs noise, as it may help you out as you’re learning about neuron tracing. Questions? Feel free to drop into the forums.
