Tesla Corporation (NASDAQ: TSLA) Chief Executive Officer Elon Muskstartup Neuralink Brain chip could help treat morbid obesity. This is what Musk believes in. Echoing Musk, scientists say it’s not impossible.

Musk also described the challenges of developing the Neuralink device, and invited people with special skills to join his company.

Neuralink is developing a microchip that will be implanted into a person’s skull. Small wires equipped with electrodes travel from the device to the brain, allowing it to read and stimulate brain functions. Musk also believes that Neuralink can treat some neurological disorders.

In February, the US Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service began investigating allegations of harsh treatment of macaques used to test Neuralink’s technology. The investigation began after a complaint filed by the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Last year, Musk released a video showing a macaque playing a video game, just with ideas, using a neural implant.

Neuralink said it hopes to begin human trials later this year.
