Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm studying decoherence at the moment, as a result I've also been looking a wavefunction collapse.

I was wondering what the definition of a full measurement is and whether they occur outside of the lab? - I've been looking at 'measurement like' interactions, which cause decoherence, but not actual collapse.

I suppose my question boils down to: what's the difference between a measurement and a measurement like interaction? ... at the moment it seems to me that simply consciousness is involved in one but not the other!

Thanks alot!
