This review paper has three main goals. First, to discuss a contextual neurophysiologically plausible model of neural oscillators that reproduces some of the features of quantum cognition. Second, to show that such model predicts contextual situations where quantum cognition is inadequate. Third, to present an extended probability theory that that not only(More)
The activity of collections of synchronizing neurons can be represented by weakly coupled nonlinear phase oscillators satisfying Kuramoto’s equations. In this article, we build such neural-oscillator models, partly based on neurophysiological evidence, to represent approximately the learning behavior predicted and confirmed in three experiments by(More)
Contextuality is a central property in comparative analysis of classical, quantum, and supercorrelated systems. We examine and compare two well-motivated approaches to contextuality. One approach (“contextuality-by-default”) is based on the idea that one and the same physical property measured under different conditions (contexts) is represented by(More)
In this paper I discuss Stapp’s interesting proposal of using the Quantum Zeno Effect to account for the mind/matter interaction [22]. In particular, I discuss some of the motivations for it, and then argue that, in his current version, his model is circular (a solution to this, proposed by Kathryn Laskey, is presented), insofar as the mind/matter problem(More)
Soybeans grown under water stress associated with high temperatures during seed maturation and pre-harvest may produce green seed (GS) with expressive reduction in seed quality. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the response of different soybean cultivars grown under these stressful conditions regarding their susceptibility to GS production and(More)
