Elon Musk is suspected of hiding the real picture with Neuralink implants

Another investigation is being initiated against the billionaire

Four US lawmakers have asked the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to investigate whether Elon Musk committed securities fraud by allegedly misleading investors about the safety of a brain implant being developed by Neuralink.

The request for an investigation came from Democratic House Representatives Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, and Barbara Lee and Tony Cardenas of California.

Elon Musk is suspected of hiding the real picture with Neuralink implants

Let us remind you that the company is preparing for the first human trial of a brain implant, intending to further help patients overcome paralysis and a variety of neurological diseases.

The letter cites veterinary records obtained from Neuralink experiments on monkeys that indicate the animals were harmed by the implant experiments. Paralysis, convulsions and cerebral edema are mentioned. At least 12 young and healthy monkeys were euthanized “as a result of problems with the company’s implant,” the letter said.

But Musk, Neuralink’s CEO, downplayed investor concerns about the animal test results, according to a letter filed with the SEC.

Musk wrote that “no monkey has died as a result of the Neuralink implant” on social network X on September 10. He added that the company chose “terminal” monkeys to minimize the risk to healthy ones.
