Neuralink’s Brain Chip Amazes The World – “Could ‘Telepathy’ Soon Be A Reality?”

It is time to say goodbye to the old ways of typing on keyboards or keypads. The implanted wireless chip in the human brain can now read your thoughts! Have you ever imagined the possibility of such a development? However, recent news confirms this. Neuralink, the company Elon Musk owns, has implanted the first brain chip in the human brain. “Initial results show promising neuron spike detection’ – The multi-millionaire has claimed this after announcing the news of the successful implantation of the wireless chip, which he named ‘Telepathy’. 

The human brain has fascinated scientists around the world for centuries because of its  complex structure and unsurpassed intricacies. Their studies involved comprehending the brain and the nature of its working. The scientists have done many experiments exploring prospective applications that help develop brain functions.

Neuralink received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration to experiment on the human brain in May 2023. The initial trials were conducted on animals.

The Functioning Mechanism

The wireless chip can be implanted in the brain via robotic surgery. It connects to the neurological system and collects neurons in your brain, which are wirelessly transmitted to any device or app on your mobile phone or computer. This means, you don’t have to touch your phone or computer; your ideas will be immediately transferred to the gadget and will function as needed! Amazing, isn’t it? 64 thin cords containing 1024 electrodes inside the ‘brain chip’ capture all the information from the brain. The device has a wireless battery, which can be recharged as needed.  

Will This Lead To Numerous Developments In Medical Science?

If this mechanism develops, it can bring many incredible benefits to the medical field. We cannot ignore the possibility that such devices can control the neurons in our brains. 

Neuroscientists believe that this technology has the potential to assist in treating a variety of brain-related disorders. For example, the underlying cause of epilepsy is the imbalance of electric impulses in the brain. Suppose such wireless chips are implanted in an epileptic patient’s brain. In that case, they can read and observe fluctuations in electric impulses within the brain, as well as control them to maintain equilibrium. It is possible to improve the brain’s functionality and enhance one’s memory with such wireless brain chips.

Safety Concerns

However, when it comes to safety, the results are still unpredictable. If the innovative wireless chip outperforms all of the studies, it would be an excellent achievement for medical science. The scientific world is curiously looking forward to more outputs related to this in the future.
