Neuralink’s Human Patient Shares What Happens to Experimented Animals

  • Neuralink’s first human patient, Noland Arbaugh, revealed that animals used in experiments are eventually killed to study the effects of the experiment.
  • Arbaugh explained that this is a common practice in the industry, but did not specify if Neuralink follows the same procedure.
  • Neuralink aims to create a brain chip that can restore vision and potentially exceed normal human vision.

Neuralink, a company founded by Elon Musk, is working on a brain chip that can restore vision in humans. However, to achieve this goal, the company is conducting experiments on animals, specifically monkeys. In a recent podcast, Neuralink’s first human patient, Noland Arbaugh, shared what happens to these animals after they are experimented on.
Arbaugh explained that animals are eventually killed, or “sacrificed”, to study the effects of the experiment on their bodies. This practice is common in the industry, but Arbaugh did not specify if Neuralink follows the same procedure. Despite this, Musk has previously stated that no monkeys have died or been seriously injured during Neuralink’s experiments.
Neuralink’s brain chip, called Blindsight, aims to bypass damaged eyes and stimulate the visual cortex of the brain directly, creating a new kind of vision for the recipient. While there are potential risks and ethical concerns surrounding animal testing, Arbaugh is focused on the transformative potential of Neuralink.
