The Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience (JMN) announces its affiliation

with the Association of Quantum Paradigms of Psychopathology 

The Quantum Paradigms of Psychopathology (QPP) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2008 with Marco Cavaglià, MD, PHD, as its current President, who is also an Editorial Board Member of JMN.


The founder of QQP, the late Massimo Cocchi, M.D., declared at the “Palermo” Declaration [1]:


“The absence of neurons and their synaptic connections does not preclude the presence of at least rudimentary phenomenal experience in organisms endowed with superposed microtubular dimers, ordered water, membrane ion channels, and/or crucial lipid raft assemblies connected to selected second messenger systems. In addition, quantum-biophysical aspects of these and/or other yet undiscovered structures and related processes may prove to be potent factors in the deeper etiologies and improved treatments of psychiatric disorders.” 


JMN certainly recognizes the need for a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach, with a strong emphasis on assessing the potential relevance of quantum biology and quantum chemistry in augmenting the assumptions of non-quantum biophysics and biochemistry to understand mind-brain relations in normal and abnormal states of consciousness applicable to humans and non-human animals. Quantum biophysics of consciousness is one such quantum paradigm where JMN has established a niche.


JMN looks forward to associating with QPP by fulfilling the “Palermo” Declaration through high-impact publications in the forthcoming issues.
