Neuralink’s Groundbreaking Advances: Connecting Computers to the Human Brain

Elon Musk has said that his company Neuralink has connected a computer to one’s brain.

Recently, Musk’s company Neuralink planted a micro chip in human brain. This chip is the size of a coin. At the time of unveiling this chip, Elon Musk said that it can cure blindness, treat paralysis and solve problems like deafness.

He added that in the future (with the Neuralink chip) you will be able to store and replay memories. It’s like an episode of ‘Black Mirror’. Eventually you will be able to download them into a new body or robot body.

According to preliminary results, excitatory neuron spikes or nerve impulses have been observed in the patient’s brain after the chip has been implanted, while the patient is also recovering rapidly.

The FDA granted permission to Elon Musk’s company for experiments involving BrainChip on humans in May of last year. As a result, a six-year study was initiated in which through surgery, even finer threads than hair are implanted in a part of the brain that controls physical movement.

So far, this system has only been tested on animals. However, Elon Musk now says that this system has been tested on a human.

He said in his message on X that the first human was implanted with Neuralink (system) and he is recovering.

Elon Musk did not give further details about the experiment, nor did he say who the first chip implanter was or what the technology was.

Neuralink was founded in 2016 with the hope of creating a new way for humans to interface with machines. It has been fairly secretive about its work since it was created, but it has revealed that observing neuron activity requires tiny chips to be inserted into the brain, which can be done by a specially designed robot.

Neuralink said last year that it had begun selecting candidates for the first human trials of its technology.

At the time, he suggested that he was looking for people who had ‘paralysis of both arms and legs due to cervical spinal cord injury or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).’
