Physicists explain how the brain might connect to the quantum realm

Our brains are composed of cells called neurons, and their combined activity is believed to generate consciousness. Each neuron contains microtubules, which transport substances to different parts of the cell. The Penrose-Hameroff theory of quantum consciousness argues that microtubules are structured in a fractal pattern which would enable quantum processes to occur.

‘Time Cells’ Identified in Our Brains Encode The Flow of Time, Scientists Say

According to the researchers, time cells in the human brain are “multi-dimensional”, capable of encoding information in relation to time but also responding to different kinds of sensory information or stimuli.
It’s possible, the team thinks, that the multi-dimensional behavior of these time neurons might be what records the ‘what’, ‘where’, and ‘when’ of experiences, stitching elements together to make up coherent memories from a jumble of inputs.
“The phenomenon of subjective ‘mental time travel’ is a cornerstone of episodic memory,” the researchers say.
