A group calls for an investigation into the deaths of monkeys in animal experiments on Neuralink, a brain-implanted device promoted by Elon Musk, and human clinical trials are imminent.

Elon Musk, who is responsible for businesses such as X (Twitter), Tesla, and SpaceX, is also working on ``Neuralink'', a brain computer interface (BCI) that is embedded in the brain and communicates with external devices.

We received approval to conduct a clinical trial from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2023, and have begun recruiting subjects for the clinical trial from September 2023. The SEC, a medical whistleblower organization, is calling on the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate.

According to the indictment report, Neuralink conducted invasive experiments on rhesus macaques at the University of California, Davis from 2017 to 2020, including sometimes lethal experiments.

The University of California, Davis was a partner with Neuralink until 2020, and in 2022, the University of California, Davis, partnered with Neuralink. We comply with all laws and regulations.'

However, it has been shown that more than a dozen otherwise healthy rhesus macaques developed bloody diarrhea, partial paralysis, and brain edema as a direct result of Neuralink's implant experiments, and were later euthanized. It has been.

In an experiment conducted in December 2019, the implant broke and caused an infection, and another monkey started pressing its head against the floor for no reason after receiving the implant, and its condition worsened, and it was euthanized several months later. He said. A pathological autopsy performed after euthanasia revealed that the monkey's brain had hemorrhage, and part of the cerebral cortex had become locally tattered due to the implant.

Prior to the latest accusation, Nauralink had been under investigation by the federal government on suspicion of conducting illegal animal experiments due to a series of complaints from employees that ``animal experiments were carried out too quickly and unnecessary casualties were being caused.''
