TLDR
Comprising consciousness of unobservable quantum information integrated in quantum brain states explains the origin of the inner privacy of conscious experiences and revisits the dynamic timescale of conscious processes to picosecond conformational transitions of neural biomolecules.
Quantum transport and utilization of free energy in protein α-helices
Abstract The essential biological processes that sustain life are catalyzed by protein nano-engines, which maintain living systems in far-from-equilibrium ordered states. To investigate energetic
Quantum tunneling of Davydov solitons through massive barriers
Abstract Protein clamps provide the cell with effective mechanisms for sensing of environmental changes and triggering adaptations that maintain homeostasis. The general physical mechanism behind
The quantum physics of synaptic communication via the SNARE protein complex.
TLDR
A molecular upgrade of the Beck and Eccles model of neurotransmitter release at synapses in the human cerebral cortex is provided by identifying the quantum quasiparticles as Davydov solitons that twist the protein α-helices and trigger exocytosis of synaptic vesicles through helical zipping of the SNARE protein complex.
