Axon game

Try out this game, which Wellcome Collection created especially for its ‘Brains’ exhibition

Grow your neuron as long as possible by clicking on protein targets. You’ll only be able to click on targets within your circle of influence, so be quick – your influence will decrease over time. And beware of other rival neurons that complete for available protein targets.
