If you're intrigued by the notion of having Elon Musk's brain implant, you have the opportunity to participate in the Neuralink Patient Registry at neuralink.com/patient-registry.

Named "Prime Study," the first clinical trial stands for Precise Robotically Implanted Brain-Computer Interface (PRIBCI) held near the 6-year mark in the Prime Study brochure.

"In the video, a Neuralink promoter says: 'You would be a part of the process of challenging limitations of leading an existence of the human species,'" is one of the quotes in a Neuralink promotional video. "Envision the joy of being able to communicate with your loved ones by thoughts only, browse through the web or play games without physical movements!"

This first app includes a conformity designing platform, that filters through candidates. Eligible applicants must have early-stage physical impairments such as paraplegia, the loss of the use of limbs, blindness, deafness, loss of physical abilities, and/or very high degrees of impairment of brain functions.

So far, one particular person who received the implant was Nolan Arbaugh, a 29-year-old person who lost control of his arms, legs, or hands in a diving accident. He was paralyzed eight years back, and now he can use his impression by playing computer games mentally.

It is a procedure that is approved by the FDA and the Prime Study, which is the name of the multi-centre trial, involves nine visits to the place of residence and in-person ones that vary around 18 months, having two one-hour workshops per week.
