On quantum theories of the mind

In Naoyuki Osaka (ed.), Journal of Consciousness Studies. John Benjamins 5-6 (2003)
In response to recent suggestions that the phenomena of consciousness may be related to those described by quantum theory, it is argued that distinctive features of brain activity are more typical of nonlinear classical dynamics than of quantum dynamics, which is a linear theory. Thus natural scientists should turn to hierarchies of nonlinear classical systems rather than quantum theory for explanations of the brain's mysterious behaviour
