Quantum Neurobiology
TLDR
A new generation of bio-inspired quantum technologies in the emerging field of quantum neurobiology is discussed and a novel physics-inspired theory of neural signaling (AdS/Brain (anti-de Sitter space) is presented) for an improved understanding of the resolution of neuropathologies such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Revisiting the Quantum Brain Hypothesis: Toward Quantum (Neuro)biology?
TLDR
Accumulating evidence in non-neuronal systems indicates that biological evolution is able to exploit quantum stochasticity and direct experimental evidence for this is still missing but future research should address the possibility that quantum events contribute to an extremely high complexity, variability and computational power of neuronal dynamics.
A Quantum Neurological Model of Perception-Cognition and Awareness in Ambiguous Figures and the Case of the Dalmatian Dog
The present paper has mainly the aim to formulate a quantum neurological model of brain dynamics during perception and cognition of ambiguous figures here including the case of the Dalmatian dog.
Quantum Mechanics is not Physical Reality But Mental Potentiality Because of the Law of Non-Contradiction
TLDR
The consideration of quantum mechanics as mental potentiality would solve the superposition problem, as well as the measurement and the non-locality problem.

Some Solutions of Extensive Quantum Equations in Biology, Formation of DNA and Neurobiological Entanglement
Based on the extensive quantum theory of biology and NeuroQuantology, the Schrodinger equation with the linear potential may become the Bessel equation. Its solutions are Bessel functions, and may
On Human Consciousness
TLDR
It is shown how the dynamical behaviour of small scale strongly connected networks lead naturally to non-binary information processing and thus multiple hypothesis decision making, even at the very lowest level of the brain's architecture.
Oscillating Agent Model: Quantum Approach
Enabled by recent neuroscience and especially electroencephalogram (EEG) studies, this paper describes a conceptually novel modeling approach, based on quantum theory, to basic human mind states as
From the Quantum to The Macroscopic Level A New Systemic Model for Our Complex System
TLDR
A theoretical model is proposed, with a comprehensive approach that allows seeing the entire regulative network as a continuous unicuum, and the reactions of the different systemic networks to perturbations/punctiform information, with the first attempt to model and measure information in biology, going beyond the Shannon and Turing theories.

Why We Need Quantum Physics for Cognitive Neuroscience
TLDR
Cognitive neuroscience knows a great deal about the working of nerve cells, but it still does not understand how experience is formed in the authors' material brain and how consciousness arises in an unconscious material organ.
A Historical View of the Relation Between Quantum Mechanics and the Brain: A Neuroquantologic Perspective
TLDR
The brain as a mixed physical system composed of the macroscopic neuron system and an additional microscopic system and the role that quantum mechanics might or might not play in the theory of consciousness/mind is explained.
Quantum Brain Dynamics and Consciousness: An introduction
This introduction to quantum brain dynamics is accessible to a broad interdisciplinary audience. The authors, a brain scientist and a theoretical physicist, present a new quantum framework for
The Measurement Problem in Quantum Mechanics: Well, Where’s the Problem?
TLDR
This article deals with the thought experiment of Schrodinger’s cat and suggestions for alternative solutions by introducing a conscious observer.
Consciousness In The Universe
TLDR
The proposed Orch OR suggests that there is a connection between the brain's biomolecular processes and the basic structure of the universe, and it is concluded that consciousness plays an intrinsic role in the universe.
Synaptic Quantum Tunnelling in Brain Activity
TLDR
A model for a quantum mechanical trigger which regulates synaptic exocytosis, the regulator for ordered brain activity is presented which is stable against thermal fluctuations and consistent with the physiological conditions of the synaptic membrane.
Quantum Theory and the Role of Mind in Nature
Orthodox Copenhagen quantum theory renounces the quest to understand the reality in which we are imbedded, and settles for practical rules describing connections between our observations. Many
Consciousness, the Brain, and Spacetime Geometry
  • S. Hameroff
  • Philosophy
    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 2001
TLDR
It is contended that this type of objective self‐collapse introduces non‐computability, an essential feature of consciousness which distinguishes the authors' minds from classical computers.
A Quantum Theory of Consciousness
  • Shan Gao
  • Philosophy
    Minds and Machines
  • 2007
TLDR
It is suggested that a unified theory of matter and consciousness includes two parts: one is the psychophysical principle or corresponding principle between conscious content and matter state, and the other is the complete quantum evolution ofmatter state, which includes the definite nonlinear evolution element introduced by consciousness and relating to conscious content.
