Amy Robinson Sterling –
Amy Robinson Sterling will share an update on neurons reconstructed in Eyewire, a brain mapping game that was presented at AMI in 2016. Eyewire sits at the intersection of science and design, inviting puzzle gamers from around the world to work with AI to solve the 3D structure of neurons. Over the past two years, players have mapped thousands of neurons, resulting in newly discovered cell types and circuits. At AMI, Sterling will share a way for any illustrator or animator to freely download and utilize nanoscale-resolution 3D models of neurons and give a hint at what vastly larger models are to come.
