Some Brain Functions Might Be Quantum Processes

An experiment suggests that quantum processes (entanglement) might be used by brain functions which could explain memory performance and conscious awareness.

The researchers used a quantum gravity experiment to measure the proton spins in ‘brain water’ using an MRI. They deduced that the likely explanation for entanglement they observed is that the brain must have quantum process mediating it.

If the brain has quantum processes the implications for AI research and quantum computing could be huge. The two fields might be more closely linked than we thought.
