From Quantum Photosynthesis to the Sentient Brain

Energy harvesting by photosynthesis in “brainless” plants and green algae is identified as the root non-trivially quantum process powering neural correlates of consciousness in humans and other “brainy” animals. Thermofield attributes of solar energy flow through the biosphere’s food chain are suggested as a “bottom up” mediator between quantum-coherent aspects of photosynthesis and emergent dynamical architectonics of transmembrane electrical potentials in neurons. This quantum-ecological approach to energetics of brain function as part of an open dissipative world system offers a segue, experimentally grounded by empirical evidence for photosynthetic coherence, into qualitatively gauged links between quantum tunneling and the Hard Problem of consciousness.

NeuroQuantology papers (2003-2012) now Open Access

NeuroQuantology journal has decided to make the journal available as open access to all readers. So, from 1 January 2003 to 2012 will be available from journal web site at no cost. We are delighted that there will now be unrestricted access, and look forward to welcoming new readers. Further, the journal will be truly open access, and there will be no submission charges for authors. NeuroQuantology has no source of financial support, so that in order to cover various costs we have moved in the past two years to selling the journal individually or on a subscription basis. However, we wanted the journal to reach everybody, and we sought a solution with the idea that if the full text was available only to a few subscribers, our influence and readership would be reduced. The solution that we came up with was that the previous two years’ issues of the journal would be available to subscribers only. All articles and issues older than that (that is all old issues of the previous ten years) would be available to everybody on a free access basis. In fact we even made 20-30% of newly-published issues and the articles in them freely available. We intend to continue with this system, and each issue will be made freely available to all after a period of about one and a half years. This is because we wish our articles to be freely accessed and read.

From Non-Living Matter to Quantum Neurobiology and Psychopathology

The concepts of quantum brain, quantum mind and quantum consciousness have been increasingly gaining currency in recent years, both in scientific papers and in the popular press. In fact, the concept of the quantum brain is a general framework. Included in it are basically four main sub-headings. These are often incorrectly used interchangeably. The first of these and the one which started the quantum mind/consciousness debate was the place of consciousness in the problem of measurement in quantum mechanics. In this article, these topics will be reviewed in a general framework, and for the first time a general classification will be made for the quantum brain theory.

Assigning DOI numbers to each of our articles published since 2003

We are now complying with CrossRef regulations and will add a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number to each of our articles published since 2003. What is a DOI? Similar to a bar code for a physical object, a DOI is a unique alphanumeric string assigned to a digital object, such as an electronic journal, article, report, or thesis. Each DOI is unique and serves as a stable, persistent link to the full-text of an electronic item on the Internet. Unlike a URL, a DOI doesn't change over time; even if the item moves to a new location, the DOI stays the same. After joining CrossRef, we have given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) for journal as prefix: 10.14704. All published items in NeuroQuantology, including those in back articles (2003-2013) assigned a DOI number.

Conferences and Conclusions at the Year's Close


As we head towards the end of the year, it is a good time to reflect back on the most important stories and developments of the last twelve months, particularly in the light of the recent conference held by the Society for Neuroscience, which clearly demonstrated some of the ways in which the field is changing and growing. At the same time, our thoughts may also turn towards the year ahead and the new questions and breakthroughs that it may bring.

From Photosynthesis and Magnetoception to Psychopathology, Free Will and Consciousness: Advances in Quantum Biology and Questions for the Future

Over the ten years that NeuroQuantology has been operating, significant strides have been made in advancing our understanding of quantum processes in the biological world, but despite these advances, many questions remain unanswered, particularly when it comes to NeuroQuantology (NeuroScience + QuantumPhysics) and the hard problem of consciousness, leaving many mysteries to be explored over the next ten years. The last decade has produced some significant work showing how quantum effects can occur in biological systems, with advances in three areas utilizing three of the key ideas from quantum physics having been particularly prominent in the media, although often with a certain amount of controversy.

Quantum Link Between Photons That Don't Exist at the Same Time

Conventional entanglement links particles across space. Now physicists say a similar effect links particles through time. Physicists have long known that quantum mechanics allows for a subtle connection between quantum particles called entanglement, in which measuring one particle can instantly set the otherwise uncertain condition, or "state," of another particle—even if it's light years away. Now, experimenters in Israel have shown that they can entangle two photons that don't even exist at the same time.

Ten Years of NeuroQuantology: A Long and Narrow Road

Journals, like people and other living things, undergo a biographical process. The first seeds of NeuroQuantology were sown in 2001 with a simple web page. In the beginning it didn’t even have a name, and it was introduced experimentally as “New approach to the consciousness”. What was this new approach? It was an approach that blended neuroscience and quantum physics to search with the help of quantum physics for answers to questions which neuroscience could not answer. Following the sowing of this first seed, the word NeuroQuantology was used for the first time in October 2001, and I became the father first of a journal and then of a potential new field of science.

Physics, Mysticism, Postmodern Craze, and the Latest Fashions: How Physics Is Reflected in Society and Social Life

Physics today is divided into two fields, a separation which concerns size. The first is classical physics. This kind of physics examines matter macroscopically, and has been remarkably successful in explaining macroscopic events and has even attained an iconic status of reliability.

Experimental NeuroTheology: Current Concepts and Future Research

The quantification of the velocity of the nerve “impulse” during the late 19th century challenged the ethereal concept that thought was beyond measurement and description. A century later, modern measurements of brain activity have revealed discrete, reliable, and predictable changes in metabolic and electromagnetic activity within cerebral regions during mystical and religious experiences.
