Quantum mechanical theories of consciousness

In Max Velmans & Susan Schneider (eds.), A Companion to Consciousness. Blackwell 300--312 (2007)
Quantum mechanical theories of consciousness are contrasted to classical ones. A key difference is that the quantum laws are fundamentally psychophysical and provide an explanation of the causal effect of conscious effort on neural processes, while the laws of classical physics, being purely physical, cannot. The quantum approach provides causal explanations, deduced from the laws of physics, of correlations found in psychology and in neuropsychology
