Possible Application of Variational Cluster Expansion in Modeling Correlated Neurons Activities

M. R. Khoshbin-e-Khoshnazar


In this letter, we will model neural activities using variational cluster expansion in condensed matter physics. In the model, we will assume that neurons and other brain cells are quantum objects, and thus we merely need to know their interaction, their correlation, and neuron's probability density function. Although it is very difficult to see how application of this formalism could produce anything practical in the current situation when we are still trying to find consensus on ontological and epistemological issues, it will be worth the effort to explore such possible quantum mechanisms.
