Brain implant in a pig !

Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk's neuroscience startup Neuralink has unveiled a pig with a small computer chip implanted in its brain. The implant has been described as 'a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires'. Monitoring electrical signals from the brain and decoding them for different purposes could open up all kinds of possibilities, from allowing paralyzed people to regain control of their limbs, to the treatment of conditions like depression and chronic pain. The pig was 'happy and healthy' two months after initially having it fitted.
