Almost every one will eventually develop neurological problems (such as memory loss, hearing loss, blindness, paralysis, depression, insomnia, extreme pain, seizures, anxiety, addiction, strokes, brain damage) over time. So, it has been proposed that a generalized brain device that is reliable and affordable would help to remedy these problems. Therefore, it is necessary to test the potentiality of such a device. Neuralink is a neurotechnology company researching in this area, more about Neuralink, from excerpt in Wikipedia, in italics, below: Neuralink Corporation is an American neurotechnology company founded by Elon Musk and others, developing implantable brain–machine interfaces (BMIs). The company’s headquarters are in San Francisco; it was started in 2016 and was first publicly reported in March 2017. According to Bloomberg, since its founding, the company has hired several high-profile neuroscientists from various universities. By July 2019, it had received $158 million in funding (of which $100 million was from Musk) and was employing a staff of 90 employees. At that time, Neuralink announced that it was working on a “sewing machine-like” device capable of implanting very thin (4 to 6 μm in width) threads into the brain, demonstrated a system that read information from a lab rat via 1,500 electrodes and anticipated to start experiments with humans in 2020. At a Neuralink event, Elon Musk shows of the latest advancements from his brain implant startup, including a demo showing a tiny computer chip that measures brain activity inside pigs, in the video “FULL REVEAL! Elon Musk’s Neuralink chip tested live in pig brains“, below:
