      My mistake. I misread the source.

      Correction: Synchron have been given FDA approval for their neuroprosthesis device, not their neuromodulation device (which is still in development). Regardless, the fact BCIs are being allowed to be implanted into humans is a step in the right direction and it can be assumed their other device would also be approved providing there are no pitfalls with the neuroprosthesis. It seems like this particular device is implanted in blood vessels rather than the brain itself so it seems a hell of a lot less invasive than Musk's Neuralink.

      Maybe Neuralink will be useful in the future for tinnitus. But after watching some conferences and talks where Elon Musk has debated, the timeframes he has given are absolutely not realistic.

      That is part of his charm, right?

      What kind of timeframe does he claim?

      Elon is not, but the company that he has started, the scientists that he has hired to complete this mission, might. Elon doesn’t really do much but start stuff.

      Let’s hope the regenerative stuff comes first though, so that we don’t have to resort to literally getting our brains chipped.
