Stall Catchers-Alzheimer's Research Project

Open Opportunity

About

"The Stall Catchers project is designed by researchers at Cornell University to advance Alzheimer’s solutions. This project focuses on one aspect of the disease: reduced blood flow in the brain. You can help by playing a simple game: view short videos from the brains of mice and “catch” stalls. We will teach you how to score blood vessels as “flowing” or “stalled." Even the most powerful computer technologies can’t do this accurately enough yet, but your keen eyes can help us process decades worth of data. Your participation can help us fully understand how stalls are contributing to Alzheimer’s and discover potential treatment targets."
