The first patient to be implanted with a brain chip from Neuralink, according to Elon Musk, has fully recovered and can move the mouse cursor across the screen just by thinking. Musk, who is the founder of the company, called the progress “good, with the neural effects we know,” and added that Neuralink is now trying to get as many “clicks” on the mouse buttons as possible from the patient.

Neuralink received permission to participate in a human neurochip trial in September 2023, after several scandals and demands for a thorough review of security protocols; The first surgical placement of an implant in the human brain in the history of medicine took place in January 2024. The operation was successful, and Musk has big ambitions for further use of the technology, believing that his chip will speed up the treatment of autism, obesity, depression, schizophrenia, etc. Currently, the main goal of the study is to enable people who have lost limb mobility as a result of illness or injury to control devices connected to a computer with the power of thought. Which, it seems, did succeed.
