Washington. The world’s richest man Elon Musk’s start-up Neuralink said on Thursday that it has received approval from US regulators to test its brain implants in people. Neuralink said receiving approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for a first-in-human clinical study is “an important first step” for its technology. Neuralink aims to interface the human brain directly with a computer.

“We are very excited to share that we have received FDA approval to begin our first in-human clinical trial,” Neuralink said on Twitter. This is the result of the incredible work done by the Neuralink team in conjunction with the FDA. According to Neuralink, the recruitment process for the clinical trial has not started yet. Elon Musk said during a presentation in December that the purpose of the Neuralink implant is to enable the human brain to communicate directly with a computer.

In July 2019, he pledged that Neuralink would be able to conduct its first tests on humans in 2020. Product prototypes the size of a coin have been implanted in the skulls of monkeys. During the presentation, the company showed several monkeys ‘playing’ some basic video games or moving a cursor on the screen through its Neuralink implant. Musk said the company would try to use implants to regain mobility in humans who have lost such abilities.
