The neurotechnological company of entrepreneur Elon Musk Neuralink has implanted an implant in the human brain for the first time, Azernews reports, citing a post on X by Elon Musk.

"The first person received a Neuralink implant yesterday, recovery from surgery is going well," Musk wrote. It is noted that, according to the first data, the performance of the device looks promising.

The company began recruiting volunteers for clinical trials on implanting implants into the brain, with which it is possible, among other things, to control prostheses, in September 2023.

Recall that the startup Neuralink was created by Musk in July 2016 and is developing chips that can be implanted into the human brain in the future. The businessman believes that such neural interfaces will allow a person to become a cyborg capable of resisting artificial intelligence, and will also help people learn how to directly control a computer using the power of thought. On May 25, 2023, the company announced that it had received permission from the Food and Drug Administration of the U.S. Department of Health to conduct clinical trials in humans.
