Neuralink is a team of exceptionally talented people. They are creating the future of brain interfaces: building devices now that will help people with paralysis and inventing new technologies that will expand our abilities, our community, and our world.

Neuralink: Pushing The Boundaries of Neural Engineering.

From Neuron To Computer

The Link

They designing the first neural implant that will let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go.

Micron-scale threads are inserted into areas of the brain that control movement. Each thread contains many electrodes and connects them to an implant, the Link.

Neural Threads

Each small and flexible thread contains many electrodes for detecting neural signals.


Compact inductive charger wirelessly connects to the implant to charge the battery from the outside.

Understanding the brain

There are 86 billion neurons in your brain

Neurons send and receive information. Although neurons in many different types, they generally have three parts: a dendrite which receives, a cell body called a soma which computes the signal, and an axon which sends a signal out.

Neurons are connected through synapses

The neurons of your brain connect to each other to send and receive signals through axon-dendrite connections called synapses.

Neurons Communicate through electric signals

Action potential cause synapses to release neurotransmitters. These small molecules bind to receptors on dendrites, opening channels that cause to flow across the neuron’s membrane. When a neuron receives the ‘right’ combination of spatiotemporal synaptic input, it initiates an action potential.

We can record electrical signals in the brain

We place electrodes near neurons in order to detect action potentials. Recording from many neurons allows us to decode the information represented by those cells. In the movement-related areas of the brain, for example, neurons represent intended movements. There are neurons in the brain that carry information about everything we see, feel, touch or think.

Applications of Neuralink

A Direct Link Between the Brain & Everyday Technology

The initial goal of our technology will be to help people with paralysis to regain independence through the control of computers and mobile devices. Our devices are designed to give people the ability to communicate more easily via text or speech synthesis, to follow their curiosity on the web, or to express their creativity through photography, art, or writing apps.
