A physical model is proposed for volitional decision making. It is postulated that consciousness reducesdoubt states of the brain into labels by a quantum-mechanical measurement act offree choice. Elementary doubt states illustrate analogical encodement of information having “insufficient resolution” from a classical viewpoint. Measures ofcertitude (inner conviction) and doubt are formulated. “Adequate propositions” for nonclassical statements, e.g., Hamlet's soliloquy, are constructed. A role… 
Testing Quantum Consciousness
We give here a review of the experiments that we performed in the last few years to conclude that mentals states follow quantum mechanics. As theoretical basis we give explanation of the contextual
Quantum-like Cognition from Multiplicity of Time Scales in the Brain
The majority of quantum models of cognition are based on quantum physical reductionism. Since the brain is composed of quantum systems, one might try to use QM (as a physical theory) to describe such
Consciousness, Subconsciousness, Theory of States of Mind and its Applications
In this paper the general definitions of the concepts of consciousness, conscious and subconscious thinking are formulated. In the present article the central problem of the thinking that is how the
The Quantum-Like Brain Operating on Subcognitive and Cognitive Time Scales
A model in that the QL representation is based on conventional neurophysiological model of the functioning of the brain, which is sharply distinguished from the reductionist {\it quantum} model.
Quantum-like model of cognitive decision making and information processing
Quantum mechanics and the psyche
In this paper we apply the last developments of the theory of measurement in quantum mechanics to the phenomenon of consciousness and especially to the awareness of unconscious components. Various
Brain as quantum-like computer
We present a contextualist statistical realistic model for quantumlike representations in physics, cognitive science and psychology. We apply this model to describe cognitive experiments to check
The Brain Knows More than It Admits: a Quantum Model and its Experimental Con
In the present paper, a basic theoretical quantum model is formulated particularly of the perceptive - cognitive functions and for the first time such further basic features of the model are discussed.
Brain as Quantum-like Machine for Transferring Time into Mind
A model of processing of information in the brain which has the following distinguishing features: it is quantumlike (QL), the brain uses the quantum rule (given by von Neumann trace formula) for calculation of averages for psychological functions, and the QL-representation has the temporal basis.


Wave calculus based upon wave logic
A number operator has been introduced based upon the binary (p-nary) presentation of numbers. This operator acts upon a numerical state vector. Generally the numerical state vector describes numbers
