The answer will be a "yes" (despite looking like a violation of the Uncertainty Principle). 
Observations of wavefunction collapse and the retrospective application of the Born rule.
In this paper I present a thought experiment that gives different results depending on whether or not the wavefunction collapses. Since the wavefunction does not obey the Schrodinger equation duringExpand
Entanglement: Quantum or Classical?
This work discusses some inequalities and bounds that are violated by quantum states thereby falsifying the existence of some of the classical hidden variables theories and discusses some exciting manifestations of entanglement, such as N00N states and the non-separable single particle states.

Spacetime as a Tightly Bound Quantum Crystal
We review how reparametrization of space and time, namely the procedure where both are made to depend on yet another parameter, can be used to formulate quantum physics in a way that is naturallyExpand
No-go theorem based on incomplete information of Wigner about his friend
The notion of measurements is central for many debates in quantum mechanics. One critical point is whether a measurement can be regarded as an absolute event, giving the same result for any observerExpand


Remarks on the Mind-Body Question
F. Dyson, in a very thoughtful article,1 points to the everbroadening scope of scientific inquiry. Whether or not the relation of mind to body will enter the realm of scientific inquiry in the nearExpand
