Neuralink's brain chips were successfully implanted into the pig's brain, company head Elon Musk said during the presentation.
The Neuralink chips are smaller than a coin and can be completely hidden after implantation, said Musk. The chip prototypes were implanted into the pig's brain, and one of them has been living with the chip for two months.
In addition, the presentation showed a pig from whose brain the chip was successfully removed without harming the animal. Another pig, the researchers implanted two chips at once to demonstrate the possibility of parallel operation of several devices.
Neuralink chips allow the activity of the brain's tactile centers to be monitored wirelessly, Musk explained. According to him, this technology can help people suffering from brain or spinal cord disorders in the future.
