The first human patient implanted with a Neuralink brain chip appears to have completely recovered and can now manipulate a computer mouse with their thoughts, according to Elon Musk.

The first human patient implanted with a Neuralink brain chip appears to have fully recovered and can now move a computer mouse with their thoughts, according to the startup’s founder, Elon Musk, late Monday.

“Progress is good, and the patient appears to have fully recovered, with no adverse effects that we are aware of.” The patient can move a mouse around the screen simply by thinking,” Musk claimed during a Spaces event on social media platform X.

Musk stated that Neuralink is attempting to increase the patient’s mouse button clicks.

The company successfully implanted a chip in its first human patient last month, after approval for human trial enrollment in September.

According to Neuralink, the project employs a robot to surgically place a brain-computer interface implant in a part of the brain that regulates the intention to move, with the original goal of allowing patients to control a computer cursor or keyboard with their thoughts.

Musk has lofty goals for Neuralink, claiming that it will enable rapid surgical insertions of its chip devices to cure illnesses such as obesity, autism, depression, and schizophrenia.

Neuralink, which was valued at $5 billion last year, has been repeatedly questioned about its safety standards. Last month, it was reported that the company was punished for violating U.S. Department of Transportation regulations governing the movement of hazardous commodities.
