Neuralink develops advanced brain chip with fewer electrodes to boost efficiency


(MENAFN) Executives at Elon Musk's Neuralink, a company focused on neural chip technology, have announced the development of a new brain chip that will require only half the number of electrodes used in previous versions, thereby enhancing both efficiency and effectiveness. During a live broadcast on the social media platform X, they detailed additional measures being taken to mitigate the risks associated with brain chip implantation. These measures include carving the surface of the skull and maintaining normal levels of carbon dioxide in the blood.

These new precautions come after the first participant in Neuralink's trial encountered issues with the thin wires used to secure the chip in the brain. By addressing these challenges, Neuralink aims to improve the safety and reliability of its brain-computer interface technology, which holds promise for a range of applications, from medical treatments to advanced human-computer interaction.
