Founded by Elon Musk, Neuralink has begun negotiations with one of the largest centers of neurosurgery in the United States to test human brain implantable chips. This is reported by Reuters.
We are talking about the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona. Neuralink wants to achieve the formation of a research team at the university that will study and test chips to create a neurointerface between a person and a computer.
It is claimed that with the help of research, Neuralink wants to convince the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the safety of its chips. In early 2022, the FDA banned Elon Musk’s company from testing its developments on humans due to “serious safety problems.”
The Barrow Institute did not comment on the negotiations with Neuralink, but noted that the university has a good chance of resolving such studies, since its specialists have extensive experience in working with neuroimplants.
Reuters writes that in parallel with the Barrow Institute, Neuralink is negotiating with several other research centers.
