Monkeying Around Gets Serious with Neuralink



A PLAYFUL monkey!

The footage of a monkey playing the Pong video game stirred the tech world during last year. It was a part of Elon Musk’s machine-to-brain interface project. Pager, a 9-year-old macaque monkey, was used as a specimen for this breakthrough session. Two Neuralink devices were implanted in the macaque’s brain six weeks before the test. The devices were implanted in a zone known as the motor cortex, which is responsible for coordinating the arm and hand movement.
