"We are happy to announce that we’ve received approval from the reviewing independent institutional review board (FDA) and our first hospital site to begin recruitment for our first-in-human clinical trial,” Neuralink said in a statement on Tuesday.

Participants recruited for the trial will have a proprietary robot surgically implant the BCI in a region of their brain that controls movement.Accordingly, it is hoped that the device will enable them to control a keyboard or the computer cursor by the power of their thoughts.The purpose of the trial is to test the safety and efficacy of Neuralink’s implantable BCI, called “the Link,” which is a surgically embedded neural-chip implant designed to decode and stimulate brain activity.Elon Musk’s Neuralink Might Start Clinical Trials With Humans in Six Months1 December 2022, 07:04 GMTNeuralink’s announcement comes after it got regulatory approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May for its first human trials.

If successful, the cutting-edge technology developed by Neuralink could revolutionize various fields, including healthcare, communication, and human-computer interaction, with potential applications ranging from helping individuals with neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease, to enhancing cognitive abilities and enabling novel methods of information processing.

However, the company has faced trials of its own along the way: its previous testing in animals prompted a great deal of scrutiny after reports that trials were causing unnecessary suffering, and the death of 1,500 animals between 2018 and 2022, according to reports. It was also claimed that all sorts of human errors had occurred because of the company’s impatience to reach its ambitious goals.If Neuralink’s device proves safe for human use, it could, nevertheless, take decades before it is cleared for patients outside the realm of clinical trials, experts have emphasized.WorldElon Musk Showcases Monkey Playing Pong With its Mind Using Neuralink Brain Implants — Video9 April 2021, 13:04 GMT
