"Brain Implant Trials Begin: Interested?"

Elon Musk's company, Neuralink, can start testing brain implants on people. It's been given approval by US regulators.

On Thursday evening, the company tweeted some news. They have the approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This will allow them to start their "first-in-human clinical study."

Great news! Our company has been given the green light by the FDA. We can officially start our first-ever human clinical study!

The Neuralink team did an incredible job working with the FDA. They achieved an important first step. One day, it'll allow our...

The tweet is from Neuralink on May 25, 2023.

Neuralink didn't clarify on the possible trial. They'll let us know about participants soon. But the trial isn't in the USA's clinical trial database as of Friday afternoon.

The company made an announcement called an investigational device exemption. The FDA acknowledged it. The FDA spokesperson did not confirm or deny approval.

Musk has Twitter, Tesla and Space X. He congratulated Neuralink in a tweet.

Elon Musk stated that a chip that links humans and AI will be available before the end of 2022. This technology is expected to allow humans to communicate directly with artificial intelligence without the need for any external devices. Musk hopes that this will help humans keep up with AI in the coming years. However, the implications of this technology are uncertain, and some experts are concerned about the potential risks involved. Nonetheless, the development of this chip could usher in a new era of human-AI collaboration.

Musk announced on Thursday that Neuralink's timeline is on track. Back in December, Musk said Neuralink submitted an application to the FDA. He hoped to start human trials in six months.

Neuralink tried out brain computing interface on primates and pigs.

This small gadget is as big as a coin. It's put in the skull using a robot. Thin wires connect it straight to the brain. The company wants people to use it to control tech with their thoughts.

According to Musk, the first two uses would be to help people see again and to help people who can't move fast enough to use devices. He also says that he wants to connect signals from the brain to Neuralink devices in the spinal cord to help people who have neck injuries or paralysis. This could lead to helping them walk again.

Musk thinks Neuralink can do more than just help with medical stuff. Recently, he showed a clip of a monkey using a BCI to play a video game. The monkey used his mind to play.

Elon Musk's Neuralink made a monkey play a video game using a brain chip. The monkey was able to control the game without any physical interaction by directly using its mind. This was done through a wireless device implanted into its skull which interpreted the monkey's neural signals. Musk believes that this technology can be used in the future to help people with paralysis to move their limbs using only their brains. However, there are also concerns about the ethical implications of such technology.

We don't know how good this device or others like it will be. We also don't know how safe they are. Neuralink's interface is being tested to see if it's safe and works well. These tests are called clinical trials. They collect data on safety and effectiveness.

Neuralink is being investigated by the U.S. government. The investigation is about the company allegedly hurrying its animal testing. Reuters got documents and information from people inside the company. About 1,500 animals have died during testing. This happened in December.

There are many groups, and one is called Neuralink. They want to link the nervous system to computers. This can help with brain disorders and injuries. There are more uses too.

Swiss researchers made an implant that can restore communication between the brain and spinal cord. This implant helped a paralyzed man to stand and walk naturally. The study was published in the journal Nature. Clinicaltrials.gov says there are over 30 brain or spine computer interface trials happening.
