Current Landscape and Future Direction of Theoretical & Experimental Quantum Brain/Mind/Consciousness Research
The issues surrounding quantum brain/mind/consciousness research are both confusing and complex. If one can manage to grasp these issues, one may find that the past of this field has been fruitful and its future is indeed very promising. The current landscape and past achievements in this field have already been discussed by our colleagues as pointed herein. This editorial mainly attempts to classify/clarify some of the major issues and discuss what are lying ahead. Whatever difficulties may still remain, recent experimental results by several groups including those of the authors’ own make it very clear that quantum effects play important roles in brain functions despite of the denials and suspicions of the naysayer and skeptics.
