Play a computer game and help a researcher

The computer of the future is based on advanced quantum mechanics, which can cause furrowed brows for even the brightest brains and make their hair turn grey. However, a new computer game developed by researchers at Aarhus University now makes use of the brains of ordinary people to speed up the development of the quantum computer.

The mystery of our colour vision

There is one single type of molecule in the eye that makes it possible for us to see all sorts of colours. It is called the retinal molecule, and it is one of the fastest in nature to respond to light quanta – although the reason is not very well understood. A new research project will now outline for the first time how the absorption of colour…
