Breaking down neuralink

BMI

Brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) hold promise for the restoration of sensory and motor function and the treatment of neurological disorders.

The Algorithm

Digitized broadband signals were processed in real-time to identify action potentials (spikes) using an online detection algorithm.

Threads

Neuralink builds arrays of small and flexible electrode “threads”, with as many as 3,072 electrodes per array distributed across 96 threads.

The Robot

Neuralink built a neurosurgical robot capable of inserting six threads (192 electrodes) per minute

Electronics

The electronics are built around the custom Neuralink application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), which consists of 256 individually programmable amplifiers.

Instead of needles, thread and fabric,
the Neuralink robot drills 8mm holes in your skull and stitches metal threads, or electrodes, into the brain.
The threads are 75% smaller than a human hair.
