Musk tweeted to congratulate the Neuralink team.

Neuralink had trouble getting approval before. Now, the move is a big deal.

Elon Musk's Neuralink got FDA approval to test brain-chip on humans.

Neuralink team got congratulations from Musk! This was announced on Twitter.

On Thursday afternoon, the approval announcement was made by the company.

Neuralink team worked with FDA. They achieved important first step. Their work is incredible. In future, their tech can help many people. Neuralink said so in a tweet.

Since 2019, Musk said four times that his medical device company will test a brain implant on humans. The implant aims to help people with paralysis and blindness.

The company was made in 2016. They asked for FDA approval in 2022. The FDA said no. Seven employees shared this information with Reuters in March.

Neuralink was scrutinized by the government, despite the FDA's authorization of human trials.

Employees of Neuralink said the FDA gave them concerns to solve before approving human trials. The issues involved the device's lithium battery, wires moving in the brain, and taking out the device without harming brain tissue.

The FDA has approved something on Thursday. People in the US government want to look into whether the animal testing committee at Neuralink messed up. They think the experiments were done too fast and not carefully.

Neuralink is being investigated by the government.

Last December 5, Reuters reported that the USDA's Inspector General was looking into potential violations of the Animal Welfare Act. The investigation was at the request of a federal prosecutor. This act regulates how researchers handle and test some animals.

The investigation includes checking how the USDA monitors Neuralink.
