Neuralink developed a brain machine to help people with paralysis

Elon Musk’s neurotechnology company Neuralink developed a brain machine to help people with paralysis. Brain-machine interference will help people suffering from disabilities such as paralysis. The machine can help people to control things with the help of their brain or mind. Moreover, Neuralink has been developing and inventing technology to capture the brain activity of humans. The company was founded by Elon Musk to create connector through the skin with a robotics-based surgical approach and application-specific integrated circuits commonly known as (ASICs). As we all know, people with paralysis can’t even move their single part of their body so Neurallink’s scientists have become successful to some extent to take actions from paralysed people just by reading their mind’s actions.

Monkeys and study of Neuralink:

Last week Musk announced that his team has implanted a wireless chip into the monkey’s brain. The chip enables the monkey to play a video game. Recently, in the last week, the scientists of Neuralink have been succeeded to control monkey’s mind by the macaque model of BMI. By using the technology, the monkey was able to play a game with the help of its mind. Furthermore, the research is conducted only on monkeys and yet it has to be conducted on humans. The results are positive on the monkey and the company has given the green signal to use this technology on humans. For your information, the technology uses strategic locations to predict the subject’s movements.

According to Neuralink’s web site, recent experimentation on the monkey has the potential to overcome wide range of neurological disorders including paralysis. The experiment helps to restore sensory and movement function. After this experiment on the monkey, one of the animals’ protection groups had criticized Elon Musk.

After the successful experiment on the monkey; scientists are now working to develop a decoder that can help to connect a subject’s intended movement and direction to a computer cursor.
