Neuralink’s First Human Patient Recovers and Controls Computer Mouse with Mind

Elon Musk has revealed significant progress in the Neuralink project, with the first human patient now able to control a computer mouse through thought alone.

Neuralink, a company co-founded by Musk, has developed a brain-computer interface (BCI) technology designed to facilitate direct communication between the human brain and computers.

The patient, having undergone a successful implantation of Neuralink’s brain chip earlier this month has now reportedly made a full recovery with no adverse effects, according to Musk.

With the new implant, the unnamed patient has demonstrated the ability to control a mouse cursor on a screen purely with thought.

“Progress is good and the patient seems to have made a full recovery, with no ill effects that we are aware of. Patient is able to move a mouse around the screen just by thinking,” Musk said in a Spaces event on his social media platform X. 

Neuralink’s first product, branded as Telepathy, is initially targeted at patients who have lost control of their limbs. However, Neuralink’s broader ambitions encompass treatments and support for a wide array of medical conditions.
