SIMPLIFIER: LIFE WITH NEURALINK



What is Neuralink?

Neuralink is an intracortical brain-computer interface (BCI) developed to facilitate communication between the brain and external devices. It consists of 64 superfine threads with 1,024 electrodes that are implanted in the brain’s motor cortex.

How does Neuralink work?

The electrodes in the Neuralink device transmit compressed neural data via Bluetooth. An algorithm tailored to the user’s unique neural patterns translates this data into actionable commands, allowing the user to control digital devices with their thoughts.

How is Neuralink implanted and operated?

The device is implanted in the brain’s motor cortex, with electrodes woven into specific regions. These electrodes transmit data via Bluetooth to an external device, where an algorithm interprets the neural signals to perform various actions.

What activities can be performed using Neuralink?

• Browsing the web
• Sending text messages
• Scrolling through social media
• Navigating various apps
• Playing video games

What are the technical challenges faced by Neuralink?

One significant challenge is the migration of the implanted threads away from their intended positions, which can affect functionality. Reprogramming remaining threads can help restore device performance.

What are the potential benefits of Neuralink?

• Enhanced communication for individuals with mobility impairments
• Improved quality of life through greater independence
• Contribution to the advancement of BCI technology by identifying what works and what needs improvement
