Quantum models of higher level brain functions such as conscious experience, suggest that the neural correlate of mentation requires dynamical properties instantiated at the Planck-scale. Several candidate quantum processes have been suggested, but it remains to be seen how these quantum properties can relate to the established classical signals in the(More)
Here, we propose that global brain function is geared towards the implementation of intelligent motricity. Motricity is the only possible external manifestation of nervous system function (other than endocrine and exocrine secretion and the control of vascular tone). The intelligence component of motricity requires, for its successful wheeling, a prediction(More)
Pellionisz and Llinás proposed, years ago, a geometric interpretation towards understanding brain function. This interpretation assumes that the relation between the brain and the external world is determined by the ability of the central nervous system (CNS) to construct an internal model of the external world using an interactive geometrical relationship(More)
Theories of fundamental physics as well as cosmology must ultimately not only account for the structure and evolution of the universe and the physics of fundamental interactions, but also lead to an understanding of why this particular universe follows the physics that it does. Such theories must ultimately lead to an understanding of the values of the(More)
A new type of scaling applicable to a variety of physical parameters in the universe is proposed here. This utilizes a relation linking the fundamental masses and fundamental constants in nature and an axiomatic approach is developed for the relations between microscopic and macroscopic found by Eddington and Dirac. In this approach, the fundamental(More)
It is evident from a wide range of experimental findings that ion channel gating is inherently stochastic. The issue of "memory effects" (diffusional retardation due to local changes in water viscosity) in ionic flow has been recently addressed using Brownian dynamics simulations. The results presented indicate such memory effects are negligible, unless the(More)
