The chip in the brain by Musk will allow to control hormones and cure diseases

The other day the CEO of  SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk tweeted that he would tell details about his project Neuralink August 28 this year. Most likely, the team is going to present its own neural-interface - a technology that will combine the human brain with a computer using an implant. In his new tweets, Elon Musk reveals a little bit of information to readers about what the new development will be like.

Thus, according to the inventor, new tech will allow people to listen to music without any accompanying devices, and directly from their own brain. Besides, the technology will allow controlling the level of hormones, neurotransmitters, and other molecules in the body in order to improve health (for instance, it will help to relieve the pain or reduce anxiety).

The implant procedure itself, Musk said, will be automated and fairly simple. The device will interact with any part of the brain and help, for example, restore lost sight, hearing, or limb functionality. In Alzheimer's disease, the neuro-interface will be able to return the lost memory to the patients. And in the future, technology may allow people to communicate without words. 

In 2020, specialists have already conducted a series of experiments on animals, which were more than successful. Now they hope to get permission to start testing on humans.
