The BRAIN-computer interface switches to "new Imagination" : Musk wants to send music to the brain via a chip

The benefits of listening to music

Relieves anxiety. Studies have shown that listening to music can physically relieve stress and even reduce symptoms of depression. A happy tune can really make you feel like you're "walking in the sun." Research shows that music can boost your mood and make you happier. Rhythmic music may be the key to lifting more weight. According to the study, music can increase your motivation to exercise. It also allows you to run faster and have more endurance. Listening to classical music can help relieve insomnia among college students. Background music can enhance cognitive performance, and studies have shown that upbeat music can make you perform better under pressure.

The chip sends music to the brain

Have you ever fantasized about feeling great music in your head without having to turn it on or wear any playback device? This sounds like something out of a science fiction movie and may soon become a reality. Have you ever fantasized about feeling great music in your head without having to turn it on or wear any playback device? This sounds like something out of a science fiction movie and may soon become a reality.In a recent Twitter interaction with computer scientist Austin Howard, Musk revealed that his Neuralink company could one day develop an implant that allows music to flow directly into a user's brain. But he didn't give details, so it's unclear how the product would bypass the ear nerves and deliver music directly to the brain. Earlier, Mr Musk hinted on Twitter that Neuralink's chip would be able to treat depression and addiction by "retraining" certain parts of the brain. Neuralink has previously spoken publicly about N1, a sensor chip that can be implanted into the brain by a robot through a two-inch incision, which is said to take less than an hour. But the implant has only been tested on animals and has not yet entered the clinical stage in humans. Neuralink's chip will first focus on medical applications, such as the effects of brain diseases such as epilepsy, Musk said. After that, the brain chips will be updated to develop a "symbiotic relationship" between AI and humans. Ultimately, the implanted chip will protect humanity from becoming an endangered species.

The establishment of Neuralink

In June 2016, Musk talked about a science fiction concept called "neural neural" -- how human brains interact with machines. Soon after, Musk and eight other co-founders started Neuralink, a neurotechnology company that develops implanted brain-computer interfaces. Neuralink has said since its inception that it plans to develop a device that can be implanted in the brain and that will help people with certain brain injuries, such as strokes. Neuralink plans to bring the device to market in about four years, Musk said on his blog. Neuralink's new system does less brain damage and transmits more data than previous technologies. The Neuralink team, meanwhile, has performed at least 19 robotic surgeries on the animals and successfully placed so-called threads of electrical circuits that allow the animals to control the machines using their brains, with an estimated success rate of 87 percent. According to Musk, the Neuralink team successfully used "a monkey to control a computer using its brain. Neuralink could receive FOOD and Drug Administration approval to begin clinical trials on humans as early as next year, According to Musk.
