Elon Musk’s Company Neuralink: Human Trials?

Neuralink, the company founded by entrepreneur, and CEO of Tesla and Twitter, Elon Musk, has been making headlines with its plans to develop an implantable brain technology for humans. The company has announced that it will begin the use of human subjects for its experiments. However, will they be able to?

In early 2022, the company suffered a major setback as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration rejected the application for Neuralink to start human trials. However, Neuralink currently continues to reach out to major U.S. neurosurgery centres while also continuing to test on animals such as pigs and monkeys.

What is Neuralink?

Neuralink is a technology that involves implanting a very small device into a human brain. The device can read and transmit neural signals. The goal of this is to help people with disabilities and neurological disorders. Such as helping people who can’t walk or people who are permanently blind.

The backlash faced:

According to certain reports, Neuralink has been struggling to find human test subjects for their technology implant. The company has reached out to many medical centres and hospitals around California and has faced major resistance from the medical community. The biggest concern about Neuralink is the safety of the device. Many are criticizing Neuralink in the medical community because they are concerned about the potential risk of infection to the brain tissue. Not only this, but people in the medical community are scared that it could potentially cause permanent brain damage.

Neuralink’s implantable brain technology is a new, revolutionary concept that has the potential to transform thousands or even millions of lives in the future. People with disabilities and neurological disorders can benefit from it. However, along with significant backlash from the medical community, the company has also faced many challenges in the development of the device. The majority is particularly worried about Neuralink’s human trials. Further research and development are necessary to address these concerns and convince the medical community that it is indeed safe. Despite these challenges, Neuralink’s technology can change the world and it is very exciting to watch this area of innovation and understand where it will be in the next couple of years.
