It has become known where Elon Musk's company Neuralink is testing brain implants

Elon Musk's company Neuralink has finally revealed the location of human trials of its brain-computer interface (BCI) technology.

< p>This is the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. Trials of the Neuralink device aim to give people with paralysis the ability to control external devices using only their thoughts. The first participant, Noah Arbo, was successfully implanted in January and has since been demonstrating his ability to play games such as chess with the system.

“We partnered with Barrow because of their experience working with complex neurological diseases.&rdquo ;, – says a recent Neuralink blog post. Barrow, known for its extensive research and surgical expertise, boasts more than 300 active clinical trials and performs thousands of neurosurgical operations annually.

However, Neuralink's approach to transparency has drawn criticism. The company has not published the results of peer-reviewed studies or listed them on ClinicalTrials.gov, which is standard practice for human studies. Updates come mostly via social media or from Musk himself.
