Neuralink human trials explained
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had given the company clearance last year to conduct its first trial to test its implant on humans. Nerualink's Prime study is a trial for its wireless brain-computer interface to evaluate the safety of the implant and surgical robot. The study will assess the functionality of the interface, which enables people with quadriplegia, or paralysis of all four limbs, to control devices with their thoughts.
A US newswire stated that Elon Musk-owned company Neuralink was fined for violating US Department of Transportation (DoT) rules regarding the movement of hazardous materials. During inspections of the company’s facilities in Texas and California in February 2023, DoT investigators found the company had failed to register itself as a transporter of hazardous material.
The US Department also found improper packaging of hazardous waste, including the flammable liquid Xylene. Xylene can cause headaches, dizziness, confusion, loss of muscle coordination and even death.
