It’s unclear what kind of deal Musk is proposing, as no news reports have yet responded or confirmed. Reuters sources also said a deal is not final and Synchron has yet to decide whether to accept Musk’s offer. Apparently, the manager contacted the CEO of Synchron after expressing disappointment to Neuralink staff at the company’s slow progress.
Neuralink announced in 2019 that it will receive approval for human experiments in 2020. In January of this year, the company began seeking a clinical research director to oversee testing of its medical device on human subjects. However, this has not happened yet.
Meanwhile, rival company Synchron announced in July that it had deployed its brain-computer interface to the motor cortex of a human patient for the first time in the United States. Doctors at Mount Sinai West in New York did so as part of the COMMAND trial, which aims to examine the safety of the company’s Synchron implant in patients with severe stroke. The company also completed a study in Australia, where four people were found to be still safe with their implants, even a year later.
Like Neuralink, Synchron hopes to give people with limited mobility the ability to control devices like smartphones and computers with their minds. Earlier this year, Neuralink co-founder Max Hodak, who left the company in 2021, announced that he is taking on a consulting role with Synchron.
