Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine. United States
Donald Mender, M. D., F. A. P. A., is currently a faculty co-sponsor of the Yale Philosophy and Psychiatry Group. He served in the past as an Executive Council member of the Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry (AAPP) and founded the AAPP's New York City Chapter. He has also served as the original organizer of the initiative on Quantum Paradigms of Psychopathology (QPP), as the first corresponding secretary of QPP's Scientific Program Committee, and as the first QPP section editor of the NeuroQuantology Journal. Dr. Mender has published numerous works related to quantum neurodynamics with a recent focus on potential psychiatric applications.
The author recalls his own 14 year long encounter with Professor Gordon Globus, who has created and honed a uniquely existential theory of dissipative thermofield neurodynamics. Evolution of the author’s ideas about quantum aspects of the brain’s mental function is linked to the influence of Professor Globus as an inspiring role model and supportive mentor.
