Dept of Neurology, Assoc. Prof. Editor-In-Chief
He is awarded Research Encouragement Award by the Society of Brain Research in 2000, Research Encouragement Award by TUBITAK (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) of Brain Research in 2001 and Sedat Simavi Health Sciences Award by the Society of Turkish Journalists in 2003. Dr. Tarlacı is a study member of the Neurology Intensive Care and Cognitive Neuroscience Group. His concentration in the field of research is to find out if the rules of quantum physics apply to the nervous system.
Quantum Physics in Living Matter: From Quantum Biology to Quantum Neurobiology
For years, quantum physics was seen as the physics of non-living matter. Thus, when biological living things were discussed, this sequence always came to the fore: biology > organism> organs> tissue> biochemistry> physics> classical mechanics + quantum mechanics. It can be seen that there was a reduction to the lower structures, and that at the base one reaches the level of particles such as atoms and molecules. But when the physico-chemical level is reached, it can be seen that many quantum mechanical events are taking place in living things, and that in fact these are quite normal reactions.
