The Lesion: Charcot's Tournament
A strategy game about neurologic localization.
Paris, 1893. You have been summoned to the deathbed of Jean-Martin Charcot, the self-proclaimed godfather of neurology. He bids you to compete against the greatest scientific minds in Europe . Outwit these master diagnosticians, and you may earn the greatest honor in the history of medicine: to have all future neurologic diseases bear your name .
The Lesion: Charcot's Tournament was designed by neurologists at the University of Michigan and is based on real human neuroanatomy. Players map neurologic electrical pathways that sense the environment and tell our bodies what to do. Earn points by finding lesions where two or more pathways overlap. Earn even more points by finding a lesion in every part of a pathway.
