Synchronous firing and its influence on the brain's electromagnetic field: Evidence for an electromagnetic field theory of consciousness
The human brain consists of approximately 100 billion electrically active neurones that generate an endogenous electromagnetic (em) field, whose role in neuronal computing has not been fully
The CEMI Field Theory: Closing the loop
Several theories of consciousness first described about a decade ago, including the conscious electromagnetic information (CEMI) field theory, claimed that the substrate of consciousness is the

TLDR
It is argued here that nearly all examples of so-called ‘integrated information’, including neuronal information processing and conventional computing, are only temporally integrated in the sense that outputs are correlated with multiple inputs: the information integration is implemented in time, rather than space, and thereby cannot correspond to physically integrated information.
Conscious Electromagnetic (CEMI) Field Theory
TLDR
The conscious electromagnetic field theory (cemi field theory) is described which proposes that consciousness is a manifestation of the brain’s electromagnetic (em) field and may be able to perform quantum computations (but without the requirement for quantum coherent states of matter).
Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology
TLDR
The secrets of life on the edge, the weird world of quantum, and quotes by johnjoe mcfadden.
Aging Together: Dementia, Friendship, and Flourishing Communities
Never in human history have there been so many people entering old age-roughly one-third of whom will experience some form of neurodegeneration as they age. This seismic demographic shift will force
Comment on Book Review of `Quantum Evolution' (Johnjoe McFadden) by Mathew J. Donald
This paper is a response to the critical review by Mathew J. Donald of the popular science book 'Quantum Evolution' by Johnjoe McFadden and our earlier paper (by Johnjoe McFadden and Jim Al-Khalili),
Human Nature: Fact and Fiction
