The company Neuralink, whose founder is Elon Musk, is looking for a partner to test on humans chips implanted in the human brain. Negotiations are currently underway with the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona and several other research centers.

This was reported by Reuters.

Neuralink plans to persuade one of the largest neurosurgery centers in the United States to create a team of researchers that will study and test brain chips. It is about the need to create a neural interface between a person and a computer.

The company believes that the results of research will be able to convince the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that their development is safe. Despite a ban from the FDA on human brainchip testing in February 2022, Elon Musk hoped to receive a positive decision in the spring. However, then Neuralink refused a request to start human trials.

So far, the Barrow Institute has not confirmed information about negotiations with Neuralink. Instead, they noted that they have the appropriate base and experienced specialists to work with neuroimplants.
