Book Description:
Since 2003, neuroscience and quantum physics have been growing together by examining two main topics under NeuroQuantology. One of these is the measurement problem in quantum mechanics. The other topic of NeuroQuantology is quantum neurobiology: that is, the brain operates not only at a classical, macroscopic level, but also at a quantum microscopic level. It covers the question of where this level begins and whether it has a bearing on our consciousness, mind, memory and decision-making processes. The last subtopic is quantum biology. Quantum biology refers to applications of quantum mechanics to biological objects. The first people to suggest that quantum mechanics could operate in biology, even though they were the godfathers of quantum mechanics, now after 100 years have passed, have been squeezed into quantum mechanics and the physics and chemistry of solid, dead matter. This book provides the motivation to break down this resistance and open further a new door to quantum neurobiology. This book gives the reader a distinctly better understanding of interdisciplinary approach of the brain, including quantum mechanics and neuroscience. This book is about the edge of new science, briefly NeuroQuantology in a nutshell. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
