Researchers crowdsource brain mapping with gamers, discover six new neuron types
With the help of a quarter-million video game players, Princeton researchers have created and shared detailed maps of more than 1,000 neurons—and they’re just getting started.
Types of plasma
Two important parameters in plasma physics are the electron Debye length, $\lambda_{\mathrm{D}e}$, a measure of the distance over which charge-screening effects occur and deviations from quasi-neutrality are observed, and the number of paricles in a “Debye cube” (of side length $\lambda_{\mathrm{D}e…
