RT @tanyalewis314: Here's my story on Elon Musk's @neuralink brain implant, which consists of flexible electrodes that can supposedly record from 3,000 channels in the cortices of mice. (Still a long way to go before human testing though.) https://t.co/8azRRSYlIO @sciam

Neuralink says it can robotically implant more than 3,000 flexible-polymer electrodes in a rat or monkey brain. The device is still a long way from routine human use, however
