A behind the scenes look at the EyeWire community.
Meet the EyeWirers who are mapping the brain. Today’s featured EyeWirer is @jinbean.
So, tell the world a little about yourself.
Hi all! My name is Jin and I am finally a physician! I graduated from residency last year and became a “real grown-up” after eons of schooling and training.
Why do you play EyeWire?
I love jigsaw puzzles and I have been building them since I was little (and was much better at it once I learned to NOT eat the pieces); I actually have a 3000-piece replica of the Sistine Chapel on my wall. With school out of the way, I wanted to get back to puzzles. EyeWire supplies me with a plethora of jigsaw puzzles on steroids! What is even better, I learn more about neuroscience, help with research, and put my OCD traits to good use. I hope to see cures for diseases with the information EyeWire finds.
How did you discover EyeWire?
I have to thank NPR for introducing me to EyeWire.
Share a few facts that helps the world get to know you.
- I grew up in the NYC and now live in Texas with my awesome husband and our 3 rescued dog-kids.
- I love sleep and never realized how much I missed it.
- I enjoy sci-fi shows.
- I drink way too much coffee.
- I really don’t like doing the laundry and ironing.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I play EyeWire with frozen boo boo packs under my laptop.
