Neuralink is a nanobiotechnology company developing brain-machine interface to connect humans and computers.
The company is making a neural lace with the ability to recognize and interact with the electrical and chemical signals passing through the nervous system within neurons. Their devices in development detect the electrical field produced by nerve action potentials and record the information represented by a neuron. The brain is then represented by the firing statistics of action potentials. Neural recordings can be decoded and turned into electrical signals fed back to the nervous system or into robotic devices. Neuralink's N1 Sensor is designed to "record from and selectively stimulate as many neurons as possible across diverse brain areas." The company has three publicly stated goals for its neural lace technology:
