A few weeks ago the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) published an article based on a Freedom of Information request to look at the records of animals involved in trials at Elon Musk's Neuralink company. PCRM alleges that 15/23 monkeys used in the experiments have died and that they have been treated poorly. In a rare move from a Musk company, Neuralink published a rebuttal blog explaining their position explaining some of the nuances of what happened.
In this episode, I go over some of the facts of this case, my experience with animal studies, and then play a good video from The Tesla Time which goes into more detail.
