The 129 Eyewirers who completed over 5,000 cubes during the Countdown to Neuropia, which contributed to the recent publication in Cell, are now eligible to name a new type of neuron!

Name nominations are taking place via Eyewire notifications. Once the name suggestions roll in, the vote will be open from Nov 1-8 to all players who played cubes between 10/2014 and 8/2015. The winning name will be the permanent title of the 3rd new neuron type discovered by Eyewirers and will be announced on Nov 9 at 4 pm US ET in Eyewire chat.
