Neuralink will reportedly provide a second brain implant

Jakarta (MidLand) – Elon Musk’s neurotechnology company Neuralink will reportedly carry out a brain implant procedure on a second patient.

According to reports The Wall Street Journal quoted by Dedicate onself On Tuesday, the company received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to perform a second brain implant procedure after performing the procedure on the first patient, Noland Arbaugh.

Elon Musk said last week that his company was opening registration for a second potential clinical trial participant.

Neuralink recruited potential participants for its first clinical trial last year with the goal of bringing the technology to help people with nervous system diseases, spinal cord injuries or other conditions that cause paralysis.

Neuralink also reportedly found a fix to the problem that caused Arbaugh’s brain implant to malfunction a month after surgery.

The company said the interference occurred because the implant wire was pulled from the brain.

Arbaugh said this recently Bloomberg that the software has been updated.

Neuralink also shared video footage of Arbaugh, paralyzed from the shoulders down, performing various activities such as playing chess and operating a music-playing application.

Relationship The Wall Street Journal That said, Neuralink told the Food and Drug Administration that in the second procedure the implant wires would be placed deeper into the patient’s brain to prevent disorders like those experienced by Arbaugh.

The company reportedly plans to complete the second surgical procedure by June 2024, and over 1,000 potential patients have already signed up to participate in the study.

According to the post TimeNeuralink’s study aims to allow individuals with paralysis to control external devices using their mind with the help of a technology called brain-computer interface (BCI).

In its announcement of enrolling potential trial participants, the company said that “the device is designed to interpret a person’s neural activity so that they can use a computer or smartphone simply by thinking about moving.”
