It’s all in your head –
July 11, 2020 – Mental disorders are diseases that are still incurable by medicine intake. There are therapies, but patients have no exact cure to heal from the brain disorder fully. Brain complications like depression or addiction are the ones that reached the highest rates in the United States, especially since the start of the lockdown.
Billionaire Elon Musk, however, has a suggested solution to fight against these disorders– brain implant. A startup company made by Musk called Neuralink, founded in 2016, has been creating a mini-brain chip that is like a ‘sewing machine’ device. This brain chip is capable of connecting the human brains to computers. Its explicit purpose is to provide humans with more highly-advanced artificial intelligence technology. There are no current clues on what really is the main product of Neuralink. Not until Musk himself was asked on Twitter.
On Thursday, July 9, the billionaire was asked about the benefits of using the brain chip — more specifically for mental disorders. He confidently said that the brain chip will cure human depression or addiction, as it sees needed.
