Gaming the Brain

Marlene Sanchez

It is a game like simulator where the user maps neurons in the retina. This served as a way for people to better understand their brain and what goes on in it. So all the user had to do was look at a brain scan and try to determine what was a neuron based on the scan. Once we did that we had to physically locate the neuron in the brain on the scanner. I chose this project because anything that involves the brain or mental issues interest me so much. I feel as though I know so much more about the human brain than I ever learned in anatomy and I feel as though I made a difference in some way. http://eyewire.org/explore
