On Sunday, Elon Musk's neurotechnology startup Neuralink successfully implanted its device in a human for the first time. The billionaire mentioned on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Monday that the patient is recovering well.

The company is working on a brain implant designed to assist individuals with severe paralysis in controlling external technologies solely through neural signals. Neuralink initiated the recruitment of patients for its inaugural in-human clinical trial in the fall, following the approval granted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in May to conduct the study.
