动物权益组织称埃隆·马斯克的Neuralink在实验中使用的猴子遭受了 “极度的痛苦”

Animal-rights group says monkeys used in experiments for Elon Musk’s Neuralink were subjected to ‘extreme suffering’

An animal-rights group is accusing researchers of subjecting monkeys to illegal mistreatment and “extreme suffering” while testing brain implants for Neuralink, the biotech company owned by the Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.

一个动物权利组织指责研究人员在为特斯拉亿万富翁埃隆·马斯克拥有的生物技术公司Neuralink测试大脑植入物时对猴子进行了非法虐待,让它们感到 “极度痛苦”。

Insider viewed a draft regulatory complaint that’s expected to be filed with the US Department of Agriculture on Thursday in which the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an animal-rights group, says it’s obtained records showing the monkeys experienced “extreme suffering as a result of inadequate animal care and the highly invasive experimental head implants during the experiments.”

内幕人士查看了一份预计将于周四提交给美国农业部的监管申诉草案,其中负责医学医生委员会(Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine,PCRM)——一个动物权益组织——获得的记录显示,猴子经历了 “由于动物护理不足和实验期间高度侵入性的头部植入而导致的极度痛苦”。

Neuralink is developing a device that would be embedded in humans’ brains to monitor and potentially stimulate brain activity. The device consists of a microchip and wires that would be threaded through a patient’s skull into the brain.


The research at the center of the allegations is affiliated with the University of California at Davis, which operates a federal primate-research facility. The PCRM says it obtained more than 700 pages of documents, including veterinary records and necropsy reports, through a public-records request to the university.
