Developers of New Game Hope Crowdsourcing Will Fight Alzheimer’s Disease

A new crowdsourcing initiative wants you to play a game and fight Alzheimer’s. “The game, called Stall Catchers, was developed by the Human Computation Institute, in collaboration with UC Berkeley and other institutions, as part of the EyesOnALZ citizen science project. Stall Catchers will allow participants to look at movies of real blood vessels in mouse brains and search for clogged capillaries, or stalls, where blood is no longer flowing, Previous research suggests that capillary stalls could be a key culprit in Alzheimer’s disease.”
