Neuralink Implants Brain Chip in First Human, Musk Reveals

Elon Musk announces the first human patient to receive a brain chip implant from Neuralink. Initial results show promising neuron spike detection. Neuralink's first product will be called Telepathy.

In a groundbreaking development, Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Neuralink, announced that the first human patient has received an implant from the brain-chip startup. Musk took to social media platform X to share the news, stating that the patient is recovering well and initial results show promising neuron spike detection.

Last year, Neuralink received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to conduct its first trial on humans. This trial aims to test the safety and functionality of the implant and surgical robot, known as the PRIME Study. The wireless brain-computer interface developed by Neuralink has the potential to revolutionise the lives of individuals with quadriplegia or paralysis, allowing them to control devices using their thoughts.

The first product to be released by Neuralink will be called Telepathy, as revealed by Musk in another post on X. This exciting development opens up a world of possibilities for individuals with severe physical limitations, offering them a chance to regain control and independence.

Neuralink's study trial for recruitment began in September, with the company seeking participants to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of their innovative technology.

Despite the groundbreaking nature of Neuralink's work, the company has faced scrutiny and calls for increased safety protocols. Earlier this month, Reuters reported that Neuralink was fined for violating U.S. Department of Transportation rules regarding the transportation of hazardous materials. Additionally, last November, four U.S. lawmakers urged the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate Musk for potential securities fraud, alleging that he misled investors about the safety of Neuralink's brain implant.
