Did you know that you could help advance Alzheimer’s research by playing a game on your computer? Stall Catchers is designed by researchers at Cornell University to advance Alzheimer’s solutions through researching reduced blood flow in the brain or “stalls.” The game includes short videos from the brains of mice and asks you to score blood vessels as “flowing” or “stalled.” The most powerful computer technologies can’t do this accurately, but your keen eyes can help process decades worth of data.
In this free webinar, Dr. Pietro Michelucci, Stall Catchers Project Lead, will discuss the Stall Catchers project and take questions. This is a 1.5 hour event. All audiences are encouraged to participate in the first hour. The last 30 minutes of the webinar will provide tips for getting your community involved in the Stall Catchers project.
