May 26, 2023

ELON Musk's neurotechnology company has received FDA approval to launch its first-in-human clinical study, it was announced today. Neuralink was founded by the Tesla CEO in 2016 focusing on developing a brain-computer interface called "the link." The Neuralink technology was previously tested on monkeys while waiting for FDA approval, shocking the world after tests showed one of the animals playing video game pong with its thoughts. "These photos are public records created with public funds, and the public deserves access to the research they paid for." "It is important to note that these accusations come from people who oppose any use of animals in research," said Neuralink.
