Schumann Resonance and Brain Waves: A Quantum Description

Miroslaw Kozlowski, Janina Marciak-Kozlowska


In this paper for the first time we compared spectra of the brain and Schumann electromagnetic waves. We argue that both modes of electromagnetic radiation: brain waves and Schumann waves can be analyzed with the help of the Planck formula. From our calculation we deduced the temperature of the Schumann and brain waves T= 10-10K.
