Special Issue on Quantum Information Applied in Neuroscience

The rapid progress achieved by quantum information science in recent decades was made possible by the realization that genuine quantum phenomena, for which their occurrences are forbidden by



Quantum information theoretic approach to the mind-brain problem.

Quantum Information in Neural Systems

The presented results show that fast decoherence timescales could assist cognitive binding through quantum entanglement across extensive neural networks in the brain cortex, and show that quantum coherence of individual subsystems cannot be used for cognitive binding because it is a physical mechanism that leads to separability and non-interaction.

A quantum mechanical model for exocytosis, a quantal phenomenon of the presynaptic vesicular grid with a probability much less than 1, is presented based on a tunneling process of the trigger mechanism.

How Dirac's Seminal Contributions Pave the Way for Comprehending Nature's Deeper Designs

Credible reasons are presented to reveal that many of the lingering century old enigmas, surrounding the behavior of at least an individual quantum particle, can be comprehended in terms of an
