Quantum Biology and Non-local Linguistics

A meal for your mind:   One article about the quantum correlates of consciousness and biosystems and another about the cognitive correlates of quantum theory.

Discover Magazine reports on sub-atomic behaviors such as the tunnel effect, entanglement and wave-function collapse being studied in the context of photosynthesis, smell, the life-extending properties of red wine, and consciousness.

With the advent of powerful new tools like femtosecond (10^-15 second) lasers and nanoscale-precision positioning, life’s quantum dance is finally coming into view.

And Physorg.com posted an intriguing article about modeling verbal communication with quantum theory.

Researchers from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Australia and the University of South Florida in the US have investigated the quantum nature of word associations and presented a simplified quantum model of a mental lexicon.

Later this year, the highly regarded Journal of Mathematical Psychology will publish a special issue of quantum models of cognition. In addition, quantum cognition is a prominent theme within the Quantum Interaction Symposia, which provide a forum for a growing body of researchers applying quantum theory to non-quantum domains.
