First Neuralink human trial subject can control a computer mouse with brain implant

Elon Musk announced that Neuralink's inaugural human trial has enabled a participant to control a computer mouse with their brain nearly a month post-implant. Despite this progress, Musk's disclosure lacks specifics, and it appears other entities in the brain-computer interface sector have surpassed Neuralink in technological advancements. During an X Spaces discussion, Musk detailed the current focus on enhancing the variety of mouse controls achievable through thought. The initial human trial, authorized last year, involves implanting a chip in the brain region responsible for movement intention, aiming to enable cursor or keyboard control solely through thought. This early success could be pivotal for Neuralink, aiming to bridge human brains with computers for transformative purposes. However, Musk's scant details and the absence of evidence leave the scientific significance of this development uncertain. Neuralink's broader goal includes aiding individuals with paralysis or vision loss through brain signal interpretation. Musk envisions the first product, Telepathy, benefiting individuals like Stephen Hawking by significantly enhancing communication speeds. Yet, consumer access remains distant, pending regulatory approval.
