The present study investigated the perception of emotional and linguistic prosodic functions in speakers of Slovene language affected by Parkinson’s disease. Eight participants with a diagnosis ofExpand
Quantum Theory of International Relations: Approaches and Possible Gains
The possible application of quantum theory in political studies, especially in international relations, is considered, based on three logical ways of how to connect areas so remote: through the relation of identity, analogy and metaphor which reflects three basic epistemic positions. Expand
Quantum mechanics, emergence, and decisions
This is a contribution to a symposium to be published in Mind and Society based on a presentation and discussions at the workshop Physics and Decisions: An Exploration (Humboldt University, Berlin,Expand
The Completeness of Quantum Mechanics and the Determinateness and Consistency of Intersubjective Experience: Wigner's Friend and Delayed Choice.
A realist psi-epistemic take on QM is provided that saves the absoluteness of observed events and the completeness of QM, without giving up free will or locality and is coupled with a take on neutral monism that eliminates the hard problem of consciousness. Expand
Is there Room in Quantum Ontology for a Genuine Causal Role for Consciousness
Western philosophy and science have a strongly dualistic tradition regarding the mental and physical aspects of reality, which makes it difficult to understand their possible causal relations. InExpand
Agency, Ecosystems and Sustainable Development. Part 1: The Ecosystem
Purpose – This two-part paper is concerned with the creation of a generalised cybernetic agency-based ecosystem. The purpose of the first part is to explore the basis for the creation of an agenticExpand
Exploring electroencephalography with a model inspired by quantum mechanics
This work uncovered a tendency for EEG signals to be localized in anterior regions of the brain during “rest”, and more uniformly distributed while engaged in a task (i.e., watching a movie), suggesting a common underlying architecture of human brain activity in resting and task conditions. Expand
Hermeneutical translation of classics and cultures: the case of the I Ching and China’s inter-civilizational dialogue
ABSTRACT Based on observations of strategies adopted in Western interpretation and translation of the Chinese classic I Ching, this paper draws parallels between such strategies and WesternExpand
A minimalist's view of quantum mechanics
We analyse a proposition which considers quantum theory as a mere tool for calculating probabilities for sequences of outcomes of observations made by an Observer, who him/herself remains outside theExpand
Are mental states nonlocal
I show that if mental states are function of physical states, then they are nonlocal, in a sense that will be explained. I argue that, if mental states are reducible to brain physics, and if they areExpand


THE paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [1] was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additionalExpand
How The Self Controls Its Brain
The how the self controls its brain is universally compatible with any devices to read, and is available in the book collection an online access to it is set as public so you can download it instantly. Expand
Brain and physics of many-body problems
A model of the brain is formulated, and it is shown how some of its typical features, such as learning and memory processes, find therein a natural and simple explanation. Expand
The mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics
Classical mechanics was first envisaged by Newton, formed into a powerful tool by Euler, and brought to perfection by Lagrange and Laplace. It has served as the paradigm of science ever since. EvenExpand

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. Expand
Rethinking Feelings: An fMRI Study of the Cognitive Regulation of Emotion
Functional magnetic resonance imaging findings support the hypothesis that prefrontal cortex is involved in constructing reappraisal strategies that can modulate activity in multiple emotion-processing systems. Expand
The mind and the brain : neuroplasticity and the power of mental force
The greatest scientific advances are never the result of strict adherence to convention. Often it takes an innovative maverick, someone willing to see things differently while possessing theExpand
