|Goal||Speed up Alzheimer's research|
|Task||Build 3D blood flow models and discover stalled vessels.|
Help scientists analyze brain blood flow movies - are blood vessels flowing or stalled?
One symptom of Alzheimer’s that has been known since the discovery of the disease is reduced blood flow to the brain, but until now, nobody knew why. That is why this aspect of the disease, which likely contributes to cognitive problems and accelerates injury to brain cells, has remained untreated.

I love that I can contribute to science in a quick, fun way online!
Mildly challenging, excellent response on questions, very mportant research being gathered in leaps and bounds now that so many are "playing" to help.
It is very interesting and challenging,
