Spinal Tech

Neuralink revealed details about its first human patient, a man who suffered a spinal cord injury after a diving accident, NBC News reported March 20.

Noland Arbaugh, 29, lost all movement and sensation in his arms and legs after the accident eight years ago, the report said. Neuralink introduced him in a livestream on X, formerly known as Twitter.

He received the Neuralink brain implant in January. Now he can operate a computer and play Chess using this mind.
