Elon Musk says the technology being developed right now at the Neuralink facility in San Francisco, Calif, has “species level” importance. Two articles outline the technologies Musk’s teams are developing that aim to alter the types of lives that will be possible for people affected by a spinal cord injury or brain injury.

Get a look at the human trials shaping up for this technology in a recent article published on the website, Teslarati.com, written by Simon Alvarez.

Musk … has noted that Neuralink’s technology could help cure neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s, dementia, and spinal cord injuries, allowing those afflicted with these conditions to have a second chance at living a full life.

Details about the company’s technologies and the applications for which they will be used are spotlighted on the Neuralink.com website. There is also a complete listing of interdisciplinary career opportunities such as neuroengineers, software engineers, lab managers and more.

This technology has the potential to treat a wide range of neurological disorders, to restore sensory and movement function, and eventually to expand how we interact with each other, with the world, and with ourselves.
