Washington investigates Elon Musk for growing chips in humans' brains

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced that it was investigating the billionaire Elon Musk's brain chip transplant company, Neuralink.

The department explained that it was investigating the possible illegal movement of dangerous pathogens, according to NBC News.

A spokesman for the United States Department of Transportation said it

had initiated an investigation after receiving a letter from the Doctors' Committee for Responsible Medicine, an animal welfare advocacy group, alerting the records it had obtained on the matter.

In its letter to the United States Secretary of Transportation

Pete Buttigieg :

  • the Committee noted that it had obtained e-mails and other documents
  • revealing "unsafe packaging and movement of
  • implants removed from monkey brains

expressing concerns that these implants

may do so in violation of federal law by carrying contagious illnesses.

According to the letter, records obtained by the Medical Committee

show cases of pathogens, such as antibiotic-resistant staphylococcus and herpes B virus, which may have been transmitted without appropriate containment measures", as suggested by the Committee.

These pathogens can cause serious health problems for infected humans, such as bloodstream infections, pneumonia and severe brain damage, among others, the committee said.

The U.S. Department of Transportation spokesperson confirmed that it had taken the allegations of the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine "very seriously."

We are investigating it to ensure that

  • Neuralink fully complies with federal regulations
  • and maintains public and employee safety
  • from dangerous pathogens, he said.

Neuralink has been developing a brain implant for months, which may help paralysed people walk again, as well as treat other neurological diseases.

The billionaire, Elon Musk

said in December 2022 that he expected the wireless brain chip, developed by his company, Neuralink, to begin conducting clinical trials in humans, within 6 months.

In the same month

Neuralink was subjected to a federal investigation

regarding possible animal welfare violations, and some of its employees filed internal complaints about speeding up trials, causing unnecessary suffering and deaths.

Implantation of

chips in human brains: new limits in human promotion

In recent years 

  • the idea of implanting chips in human brains has gained considerable attention
  • promising to revolutionize the way we live
  • work and interact with the world. These chips

also known as nerve implants or brain and machine interfaces (BMIs)

are small electronic devices that are surgically introduced into the brain to increase or restore their function. The technology behind body mass indicators has evolved rapidly in recent years, leading to a new era of human reinforcement.

One of the main benefits of

body mass indicators is their ability to help persons with disabilities

or neurological conditions. For example

body mass indicators can be used to

  • regaining mobility for those with spinal cord injuries
  • enabling them to control robotic limbs or exoskeletons with their thoughts.
  • BMI can also be used to treat neurological conditions

such as epilepsy and Parkinson's disease

enabling patients to lead more regular lives.

In addition to medical applications

body mass indicators also have the potential to significantly enhance cognitive abilities.

For example, BMIs can be used to enhance memory and attention

allowing people to learn and process information faster. This technology also has the ability to help people with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia or ADHD, improve their ability to focus and retain information.

There is another exciting application of body mass indicators in

the field of human increase.

Body mass indicators can be used to enhance physical and mental abilities

such as strength, speed, perception and creativity.

For example :

  • body mass indicators can be used to promote sensory experiments
  • such as sight and hearing, or to provide people with new senses
  • such as the ability to detect electromagnetic or infrared fields.

In conclusion

the idea of implanting chips in human brains is a complex

and controversial issue that requires careful study and regulation. 

While BMIs have the potential to revolutionize the way we live and strengthen our capabilities, it is important to ensure that this technology is developed and used in a responsible and ethical manner.
