Tegmark published a paper which largely refutes the idea that neurons use
quantum interference to perform any useful computation:
In short, the brain is far to hot and uncontrolled to maintain decoherence
for the time periods involved in neural processes. The appeal for this idea
comes from the belief that the brain is too complex to just be a machine,
and must be something much more, but the brain is far more complex than any
other machine we are familiar with, with 100 billion neurons and 10^15
synapses. It is, however, interesting that while quantum mechanics doesn't
explain consciousness, Bruno's UDA shows how consciousness might explain
