Special Issue information:
Today, with the advancement of atomic-resolution scanning microscopy, we can see how quantum physiology has been discovered to be engaged in everything, including our consciousness process. This special issue presents a sequence of testable relationships between brain dynamics at different scales and consciousness. The most convincing physical connection between the informational structure of the brain and the primitives of experiences resides in specific electron de-localizations at the quantum scale within ion-conducting membrane proteins of electrically excitable cell membranes. Along with these arguments, the systems are provided by the moving charges bound to ions, the proteins act as the ‘measurement apparatus,’ and the environment is represented by membrane fatty acids, lipid rafts, G proteins, and the cytoskeleton, as suggested by Massimo Cocchi who we dedicate this special issue on quantum physiology of consciousness.
