A Quantum Formalization for Communication Coordination Problems

This paper looks at an instance of spatial knowledge transfer that occurs if one person requests route instructions from a knowledgeable source and model the process of perspective taking in such a scenario using a quantum cognition approach.



A quantum theoretical explanation for probability judgment errors.

It is concluded that quantum information-processing principles provide a viable and promising new way to understand human judgment and reasoning.

Quantum Structure in Cognition: Why and How Concepts Are Entangled

It is shown that the intrinsic and unavoidable character of entanglement can be explained in terms of the weights of the exemplars of the combined concept with respect to the weightsof the exemplar of the component concepts.

Quantum Structure in Cognition

Quantum Models of Cognition and Decision

The foundations for modelling probabilistic-dynamic systems using two aspects of quantum theory, 'contextuality' and 'quantum entanglement', are introduced, which allow cognitive phenomena to be modeled in non-reductionist ways.

Quantum computation in brain microtubules: decoherence and biological feasibility.

Critically examine the decoherence mechanisms likely to dominate in a biological setting and find that Tegmark's commentary is not aimed at an existing model in the literature but rather at a hybrid that replaces the superposed protein conformations of the orch.

Decision theory with prospect interference and entanglement

It is demonstrated how the violation of the Savage’s sure-thing principle, known as the disjunction effect, can be explained quantitatively as a result of the interference of intentions, when making decisions under uncertainty.

Conscious Events as Orchestrated Space-Time Selections

What is consciousness? Some philosophers have contended that "qualia," or an experiential medium from which consciousness is derived, exists as a fundamental component of reality. Whitehead, for

Is There Something Quantum-Like about the Human Mental Lexicon?

Following an early claim by Nelson & McEvoy (35) suggesting that word associations can display 'spooky action at a distance behaviour', a serious investigation of the potentially quantum nature of

Quantum Zeno features of bistable perception

A generalized quantum theoretical framework is used to model the dynamics of the bistable perception of ambiguous visual stimuli such as the Necker cube, giving rise to a “Necker-Zeno” effect, in analogy to the quantum Zeno effect.
