Revolutionizing the Mind: The Dawn of Neuralink Brain Interfaces
Science enters a new era: the first Neuralink implant performed in a human being - Elon Musk on X states that the patient is "recovering well. Initial results show promising detection of neuron spikes" - Neuralink implants aim to revolutionize the brain through chips that can help those with neurological problems and traumatic injuries by reading brain waves.
The first Neuralink implant in a human being was carried out on Sunday, and the patient is "recovering well. Initial results show promising detection of neuron spikes," states Elon Musk on X. The goal of Neuralink implants is to revolutionize the brain through chips that can assist those with neurological problems and traumatic injuries by reading brain waves. In May, Musk's company announced that it had received the green light from the Food and Drug Administration to conduct the first human trials.
At the end of last year, the recruitment of volunteers was then started. Neuralink has already conducted extensive studies on implants in animals, drawing criticism from many activists who claim that the company has abused animal rights, violating the Animal Welfare Act, which regulates how researchers can treat and conduct experiments on certain animals.
