Said Musk, "Initial results show promising neuron spike detection."

The brain chip device is about the size of a coin and has "threads" that connect to the brain.

A human that received an implant from brain-chip startup Neuralink is recovering well, according to founder Elon Musk.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave the company clearance last year for its first trial testing its implant on humans.

The process involves using a robot to surgically insert the wires of the implant into a part of the brain related to movement.

"The device is designed to interpret a person's neural activity, so they can operate a computer or smartphone by simply intending to move," Neuralink said.
