ELECTRODES ID THE KEY

Understanding the Brain was the first step for NEURALINK to start working on Brain chip, There Are 86 Billion Neurons in Brain allows you to move, think, feel and sense, send and receive information signals through axon-dendrite connections called synapses. Neurons Communicate Through Electric Signals, small molecules bind to receptors on dendrites, opening channels causing flow across the neuron’s membrane. When a neuron receives the ‘right’ combination of spatiotemporal synaptic input, it initiates an action potential. Recording Electrical Signals in the Brain can be done by placing electrodes near neurons in order to detect action potentials, allowing decoding of information represented by mentioned cells as there are neurons in the brain that carry information about everything we see, feel, touch, or think. ELECTRODES are meant to be directly connected to the brain as Neural activity can be monitored from outside the head using non-invasive techniques. To clarify it better, each channel records the summed activity of millions of neurons, which means the details are blurred away. As ana example, if you are experiencing a sports event on radio, from the roars or surrounding sounds of the crowd you can tell when something good or bad happens to the home team, but you'll have a hard time distinguishing whether they scored or made a great defensive play adding to that you lake of accuracy for individual people review about the game. The same is true for recording from the brain: recordings made at a distance provide some useful, high-level information, but to access fine-scale information, you need to be close to the source. Here, that means recording action potentials, or voltage “spikes,” from individual neurons. Currently, that can only be done by placing electrodes inside the brain. Interfacing with the Brain NEURALINK designed the first neural implant that will let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go. Micron-scale threads are inserted into areas of the brain that control movement. Each thread contains many electrodes and connects them to an implant, the Link Sealed, implanted device that processes, stimulates, and transmits neural signals. Neural threads are small and flexible thread contains many electrodes for detecting neural signals. Compact inductive charger wirelessly connects to the implant to charge the battery from the outside. Brain Engineering A Direct Link Between the Brain & Everyday Technology Goal of that technology is to help people with paralysis to regain independence through the control of computers and mobile devices. Giving people the ability to communicate more easily via text or speech synthesis, to follow their curiosity on the web, or to express their creativity through photography, art, or writing apps. VISUAL CORTEX processes visual information from our eyes. AUDITORY CORTEX assists with the perception and interpretation of sound. SOMATOSENSORY CORTEX helps process sense of touch. MOTOR CORTEX responsible for planning and executing motor movements. Neuralink App An app that allows you to control your iOS device, keyboard and mouse directly with the activity of your brain, just by thinking about it. BE IN CONTROL, SIMULATION, BE AUTONOMOUS with Bluetooth connection. Elon Musk Elon Musk is a South African-born American entrepreneur and businessman who was born on June 28, 1971, founded X.com in 1999 (which later became PayPal), SpaceX in 2002 and Tesla Motors in 2003. Musk became a multimillionaire in his late 20s when he sold his start-up company, Zip2. In July 2019, Neuralink executives and Musk gave a presentation on the technology the firm has developed so far. The big reveal was a tiny microchip that could, theoretically, be implanted behind a person's ear with tiny threads containing electrodes fanning out into the brain.
