Neuralink

Nanobiotechnology company developing brain-machine interface to connect humans and computers based in San Francisco, California.

Neuralink is a nanobiotechnology company that develops a brain-computer interface (BCI) to connect humans and computers. It is developing a BCI called neural laces. A neural lace is a device that spreads into the tissue of the brain and allows the computer to directly connect to it.



Pedram Mosehni, a bioengineer and Randolph Nudo, a brain specialist created the startup NeuraLink. In 2011, they were exploring the idea of developing an electronic chip to treat brain injury. The chip will reestablish damaged connections of the brain by recording neurons in one part, then transmitting the chatter to another. By 2013, they demonstrated that their prototype could help brain-damaged rats. In 2015, Musk acquired the trademark for the startup's name.



Elon Musk co-founded Neuralink with Max Hodak (previously Transcriptic), Tim Hanson, Tim Gardner, Vanessa Tolosa, Ben Rapoport, Paul Merolla, Dongjin Seo and Philip Sabes in July 2016. The company is based in San Francisco, California. It aims to solve brain diseases in the short term.
