Stall Catchers citizen science game catchathon!
|Speaker||Eglė Marija Ramanauskaitė|
Stall Catchers is a citizen science game accelerating Alzheimer's disease research at Cornell University. The game was created at the Human Computation Institute (US), as part of the EyesOnALZ project, partially developed by Lithuanian developers & researchers. The data analyzed by players around the world can lead to the first ever treatment for Alzheimer's disease, as initial findings are really promising.
During the "catchathon" participants will play the Stall Catchers game, looking at movies of a live mouse brain and looking for "stalls" - clogged blood vessels. The participant who has done the largest amount of annotations at the end of the "catchathon" will win a prize !
