A Device that Can solve Neural Problems?
Elon Musk's Brain Implant company Neurolink is now hiring a clinical trial director, an indication of the company's long-standing goal of implanting chips. The human brain is coming closer. According to the listing, the trial director would oversee the startup's long-promised human trials of its medical device. Neuralinks brain implant, which-musks has said already allows monkeys to play video games with their thoughts alone. It intends to help treat a variety of neurological disorders such as paralysis. The Job description for the position is based in Fremont, California. It promises that the applicant will work closely with some of the most innovative doctors and top engineers as well as with Neuralinks First clinical participants. It also indicates that the job will mean leading and building. The First human test that medical device makers must go through on the path to U.S Food and Drug Administration approval is a feasibility test. The next, after submission, is the Review approval process, with the FDA based on the Feasibility test, which is a pivotal device test.
It isn't clear precisely where Neurolink is in the process. Representatives for Neurolink and the FDA did not respond to requests for comment. Generally, device makers hire trial directors early in their interaction with the FDA to help design trials in a way that would maximize the chances of FDA approval. Neurolink does not appear to have difficulties posted on the Clinicals.gov Still, postings there can lag recruitment of the first patients. Last year another company working on machine interfaces, Synchron, said the FDA approved its planned feasibility study. Neuralink is also advertising for a Fermont-based clinical trial coordinator and other positions. The future of technology is embarking upon us; this potential device can still help many people suffering from neural circuitry problems function their cognitive minds. As we age, our ability to remember and compute things decreases. Perhaps this device can solve some problems in biology. Still, in a way, there's also another side to this as it can potentially also be harmful to ourselves. It depends on how our body reacts and adapts to technology.
