  • The implant could convert brain’s electrical signals into digital language for machine interpretation, hence enabling mental control of external devices.
  • Following USDA and FDA investigations into animal cruelty allegations last year, Neuralink’s PRIME trial is approved under an investigational device exemption granted by the FDA in May.
