Quantum effects beyond individual brains (suggested by psi) can't be

entangle it with other brains since computation is classical.
The UD emulates all quantum computer, as they do not violate Church
A computational description of the brain is just a relative,
description, nothing more. It doesn't actually reflect what the
brain is or
what it does.
The bet the computationalists do, is that nature has already build an
emulator, through the brain, and that's why a computer might be able
to emulate its programming, by nature, evolution, etc. And we can copy
it without understanding, like a virus can copy a file without
understanding of its content.
Molecular biology is already digital relatively to chemistry. Don't
take this as argument for comp, but as showing your argument against
is not valid.
