Quantum Entanglement in a Human Brain

  1. Jan 31, 2012 #1

    Do the experts on this forum think that it is possible for there to be special particles scattered throughout the volume of a living human brain which together form a single permanent quantum entanglement which lasts at least as long as the lifetime of the brain? If yes, what do you think might happen to this entanglement when the brain dies?

    Thank you very much

    I don't think there are no experts on this issue on this forum or anywhere in the world. So the only expert answer would be that the answer is not known.

    Hi Atyy

    Thank you very much for your reply. Am I correct in inferring from your reply that what I am talking about is not impossible?

    Kind regards

    How do you get two atoms to become entangled?

    When a photon spilts into two, the two are said to be entangled.

    Check out the work of Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff.
