Elon Musk’s Neuralink Gets FDA Rejection For Human Brain-Implant Trials – SlashGear

One thing that Elon Musk isn’t is patient. The tech entrepreneur has continuously and loudly spoken and Tweeted about the progress being made at Neuralink. In November 2022, he noted at a live-streamed presentation: “I could have a Neuralink device implanted right now, and you wouldn’t even know it.”

In Musk’s most ambitious timeline, he was hoping the company would receive FDA approval to begin human trials at the end of 2020 (from a July 2019 release). Founded quietly in 2016 and revealed in 2017, this would have been a monumental challenge to meet as the brand would have needed to both develop and test a viable implant solution that was beneficial, and safe for use. As well, this immensely tight timeline would have left no room for error or retooling of the devices. Essentially, this envisioned rollout would have seen Neuralink devices crafted to perfection on the first try, and then rushed through the approval process without any hiccups. This was the first of four public announcements about proposed timelines from the company’s chief.

Reuters’ sources outline major concerns from the FDA, including the movement of implant wiring through the brain, safety surrounding the lithium battery that will power the chips, and eventual safe removal procedures. While Musk may be highly ambitious about the future of neural implant technology, Kip Ludwig, a former program director for neural engineering at the U.S. National Institutes of Health is less optimistic. “Neuralink doesn’t appear to have the mindset and experience that’s needed to get this to market anytime soon,” he said.
