The articles describes a brain experiment that suggests consciousness can rely on quantum entanglement. It says that although supercomputers can outperform the human brain at tasks such as chess and computing, there are still cognitive tasks where our brains excel, such as interpretation, reasoning, creativity and problem solving and the nature of consciousness remains a mystery in neuroscience.
Some scientists suggest that quantum mechanisms including entanglement play a role in understanding the power of the brain and its ability to generate consciousness Trinity College Dublin researchers have found data suggesting that entanglement may be at work in the brain in research some of the methods of quantum experimental gravity
The articles also explains that quantum mechanisms have previously been shown to exist in the brain, such as certain isotopes with different rotation rates that affect physiological and brain responses but that the brain is often considered a primitive machine. Analyzing and understanding quantum processes in the brain is challenging because the specific quantum operators used by the brain may be different from those known from atomic systems
To investigate the possibility of brain binding, Trinity researchers used MRI to see if circulating protons in the brain could be bound via an unknown mediator that was present, and disappeared while the subjects slept.
If the findings are confirmed, it could mean that the brain works as a powerful quantum system rather than the classical one to give us consciousness.
Is the conceptual thinking influenced by Quantum processes since it can affect our consciousness?
Any brain field considered as Quantum processes operation?
