The implant sends tiny electrical impulses to the depressed area of ​​the brain – the left prefrontal cortex – once a day for 15 minutes. And the external device is not on the head when not being treated.

The first tester will be testing the Inner Cosmos innovation for one year, and the company plans to start another human trial next month.

Implants to treat all brain problems are generating industry buzz as several companies rush to withdraw their to market first.

Musk's Neuralink recently held a product demonstration showing a chip in a monkey's brain that allows it to control an on-screen keyboard and type complete sentences.

Synchron has begun similar trials of his brain implant in public in July.

The paperclip-sized Stentrode brain implant will be implanted in six New York and Pittsburgh patients with severe paralysis. Stentrode will allow patients to control their digital devices with just a thought and enable them to perform everyday tasks including texting, email and online shopping.

Research centers are also developing brain chips. Southmead Hospital in Bristol is said to be the first in the world to implant a device that eliminates the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

However, the Inner Cosmos digital tablet is the smallest and least invasive technology to date – a penny-sized implant. And the company compares the plug-in to an Apple Watch charger.

Implant surgery takes 30 minutes in an outpatient facility.

Inner Cosmos was founded by entrepreneur Meron Gribetz, who was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder as a child. “Our mission is to create a world that restores the cognitive abilities of mankind by balancing the human mind,” said Gribets.

“The world is in a state of serious disorder leading to disordered cognition. The effects are felt by millions, We believe our approach could make life easier for those who suffer from depression, and eventually spread to other cognitive disorders.”

Inner Cosmos' goal is to move away from prescription drugs and move towards more “effective treatments”.

“Depression, attention deficit disorder, and anxiety are all we treat. Just to underscore this point, 140 million Americans use drugs for concentration or depression, that's more people than iPhone users,” Gribets said in a 2022 presentation.

The Inner Cosmos digital tablet is powered by a smartphone app that also displays mood and depression graphs that can be shared with a doctor.

Gribets said, that this is the first time doctors will have access to this type of data, “saving the healthcare industry billions in the misdiagnosis of severe suicidal depression,” he said.

“[The implant] is 10 times smaller than anything about than in You've heard all over the world, in the BCI (brain-computer interface) brain chip market, and we're very excited,” Gribets said. “It took us six years to build this thing.”
