Elon Musk plans to implant devices into brains as early as next year

Elon Musk announced Tuesday that his new startup, Neuralink, hopes to begin implanting devices into human brains as early as next year.

“We hope to have this aspirationally in a human patient before the end of next year,” he said at a press conference. “So this is not far.”

He explained that it would be able to treat disorders like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s and ultimately could “preserve and enhance” brain function.

The tech entrepreneur, who also runs Tesla and SpaceX, admitted that the system would take time to gain approval from theFood and Drug Administration.

Neuralink’s president, Max Hodak, told the press conference that the system would be completely wireless and would last “years to decades.”
