Neuralink Ready for Human Trials

Elon Musk’s company Neuralink is ready to begin testing its product on humans after alleged burning through 1,500 test animals that all died as a  result of the implants (which the Department of Agriculture investigated, then later gave the company an exemption to continue the experiments). Musk claims the test animals, monkeys, were all terminally ill, which is why they were chosen.

The product is ostensibly designed to help people overcome neurological disorders, including to help paralyzed people one day eventually walk again (by controlling machines with their thoughts that would then move their limbs). The company is looking for humans that are either quadriplegic or are suffering from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
