Musk spoke about the condition of the patient who was implanted with the Neuralink chip

The first patient to be implanted with a Neuralink brain chip is likely to have made a full recovery. He can now control a computer mouse with his mind.

The company is currently trying to get as many mouse clicks from the patient as possible. This was announced by Neuralink founder Elon Musk at the Spaces conference held on the X platform, Reuters reports.

"The progress is good, and the patient seems to have made a full recovery, with no negative consequences that we know of. The patient is able to move the mouse around the screen just by thinking," Musk said.

Neuralink has successfully implanted the chip in its first patient after receiving permission to conduct human trials in September. They noted that the initial goal is to allow people to control a computer cursor or keyboard with their thoughts.

Musk has big ambitions for Neuralink, saying that it will facilitate the rapid surgical implementation of his chip devices to treat diseases such as obesity, autism, depression, and schizophrenia.
