SAN FRANCISCO Throwback Buffalo Bills Jerseys , Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- A new online science game, called Stall Catchers, allows the general public to contribute to Alzheimer's disease research and help researchers search for a cure.
Developed by the Human Computation Institute, in collaboration with the University of California, Berkeley, and other institutions Authentic Buffalo Bills Jerseys , the game is part of the EyesOnALZ citizen science project that 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.
Data analysis in Alzheimer's disease research, such as searching for stalls, is a time-consuming task that can cause a single research question to take up to a year to answer in the lab. The EyesOnALZ project aims to accelerate the analysis of these data with the help of citizen scientists playing Stall Catchers so that researchers can find targets for treatment of Alzheimer's faster.
""Today, we have a handful of lab experts putting their eyes on the research data Buffalo Bills Jerseys For Sale ,"" Pietro Michelucci, principal investigator for EyesOnALZ, was quoted as saying by a news release from UC Berkeley. ""If we can enlist thousands of people to do that same analysis by playing an online game, then we have created a huge force multiplier in our fight against this dreadful disease.""
The citizen science approach was developed by physicist Andrew Westphal, a senior fellow at the UC Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory. It was first used in a project called Stardust@home, in which more than 30 Cheap Buffalo Bills Jerseys ,000 amateur scientists have carried out more than 100 million searches to identify interstellar dust in collectors returned by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Stardust comet sampling mission.
