FEATURED SCIENTISTS: CELEBRATING BRAINS A/W 15-16
Eyewire is a game to map the brain founded by computational neuroscientist Sebastian Seung who leads the Seung Lab at Princeton University (previously based at MIT). We interviewed Amy Robinson, Executive Director of Eyewire, to get a glimpse into the wild world of crowdsourcing neuroscience research from over 200,000 citizen scientists in 145 countries to date -- through gaming.
Marc Coutanche currently works at the University of Pittsburgh as the Principal Investigator of the Learning in distributed Neural Systems (LeNS) lab. He is also an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition.
Marina Garrett currently works at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, WA and is pursing a project that aims to understand how learning and experience shape the network activity of cortical neurons.
