Elon Musk's brain-chip startup, Neuralink, has successfully implanted its first chip in a human patient. The individual, whose identity remains undisclosed, received the implant on Sunday and is currently recovering well.
According to a statement from the company, the chip offers neuron spike detection. "Spikes are activity by neurons, which the National Institute of Health describes as cells that use electrical and chemical signals to send information around the brain and to the body," a spokesperson for Neuralink explained.
What sets Neuralink's implant apart is its "ultra-fine" threads that are intricately woven to transmit signals within the participant's brain. This innovative approach holds immense potential for enhancing human-computer interfaces and opening up a world of possibilities for individuals with limited mobility or other physical limitations.
While this is just the beginning, Elon Musk and the Neuralink team are optimistic about the future possibilities of this technology.
