Memories and ” quantum entanglement”

on January 13, 2010

From New Scientist

“…experiments have shown that the electrical activity of neurons in separate parts of the brain can oscillate simultaneously at the same frequency – a process known as phase locking. The frequency seems to be a signature that marks out neurons working on the same task, allowing them to identify each other.

Their purpose may be to trigger activity in the various parts of the brain that store aspects of the same experience. So a smell or taste, say might trigger a coherence potential that then activates the same potential in neurons in the visual part of the brain.”

Wouldn’t this also apply to learning?
