Phosphene phenomenon: A new concept
  • I. Bókkon
  • Biology, Computer Science

  • 1 May 2008
This paper proposes a new biopsychophysical concept of phosphene phenomenon. Namely, visual sensation of phosphenes is due to the intrinsic perception of ultraweak bioluminescent photon emission ofExpand

Emission of mitochondrial biophotons and their effect on electrical activity of membrane via microtubules.
In this paper we argue that, in addition to electrical and chemical signals propagating in the neurons of the brain, signal propagation takes place in the form of biophoton production. This statementExpand

Estimation of the number of biophotons involved in the visual perception of a single-object image: biophoton intensity can be considerably higher inside cells than outside.
Recently, we have proposed a redox molecular hypothesis about the natural biophysical substrate of visual perception and imagery [1,6]. Namely, the retina transforms external photon signals intoExpand

Dreams and Neuroholography : An Interdisciplinary Interpretation of Development of Homeotherm State in Evolution
A to Nobel Laureate Denes Gabor, holographic analogy of the human brain can only be functional, not structural (1). However, several features of network models derive from *holography, and there isExpand

Implications on visual apperception: Energy, duration, structure and synchronization
Although primary visual cortex (V1 or striate) activity per se is not sufficient for visual apperception (normal conscious visual experiences and conscious functions such as detection,Expand

Spontaneous and visible light-induced ultraweak photon emission from rat eyes
Here, we present the first experimental in vitro evidence of the existence of spontaneous and visible light-induced ultraweak photon emission from freshly isolated whole eye, lens, vitreous humor,Expand

fMRI of Retina-Originated Phosphenes Experienced by Patients with Leber Congenital Amaurosis
A phenomenon characterized by the experience of seeing light without any light actually entering the eye is called phosphenes or photopsias. Phosphenes can occur spontaneously or via induction byExpand

Here, we put forward a redox molecular hypothesis about the natural biophysical substrate of visual perception and visual imagery. This hypothesis is based on the redox and bioluminescent processesExpand

The Physical Mechanism for Retinal Discrete Dark Noise: Thermal Activation or Cellular Ultraweak Photon Emission?
For several decades the physical mechanism underlying discrete dark noise of photoreceptors in the eye has remained highly controversial and poorly understood. It is known that the ArrheniusExpand

  • Current neuropharmacology
  • 1 December 2012
Although free radicals are traditionally regarded as harmful by-products of aerobic cellular metabolism, this view has recently essentially changed and it is now evident that production of reactiveExpand
