Elon Musk’s company will test brain chips on people with paralysis


About this informs Reuters.

The company has received approval from an independent panel to begin the first human trial of a brain implant for patients with paralysis.

The study plans to test the safety and effectiveness of the Neuralink wireless implantable brain-computer interface to enable people with paralysis to control external electronic devices with their thoughts.

Neuralink specified that patients with paralysis due to cervical spinal cord injury or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis will take part in the trials.

  • On December 1, 2022, Elon Musk announced the testing of the chip on a person in about six months. Two years earlier, Musk’s company implanted its technology in the head of a pig, and a little more than 19 months after that – in a monkey.
