    At the end of January, the start-up Neuralink plants a chip in the brain of the first person. Now the company owner Elon Musk explains that there is progress: the patient can now control a computer mouse with his mind.

    The first patient to have a computer chip inserted into the brain by Tesla boss Elon Musk's start-up company Neuralink is said to be able to control a computer mouse with his thoughts. Musk said at an event on his short messaging service move.” Neuralink is now trying to get as many mouse clicks as possible from the patient.

    Neuralink itself was not immediately available for further details. The company announced at the end of January that it had implanted a brain chip in a patient for the first time after receiving approval to recruit test subjects in September.

    According to Neuralink, patients should have an implant inserted into the region of the brain that controls the will to move. The initial goal is to enable people to control a computer cursor or keyboard using just their thoughts. Neuralink has been developing brain implants since 2016, which Musk hopes could one day provide a cure for incurable diseases such as paralysis and blindness. The company has already tested the implant in animal experiments and faced allegations of possible animal welfare violations.

    Neuralink, which was valued at around $5 billion last year, has also faced repeated criticism of its security protocols. In January it was reported that the company had been fined for violating regulations on the transport of dangerous goods.
