Dissipationless Transfer of Visual Information from Retina to the Primary Visual Cortex in the Human Brain

Vahid Salari Salari, Majid Rahnama, Jack A. Tuszynski


Recently, the experiments on photosynthetic systems via "femto-second laser spectroscopy" methods have indicated that a "quantum-coherence" in the system causes a highly efficient transfer of energy to the "reaction center" (efficiency is approximately equal to 100%). A recent experiment on a single neuron has indicated that it can conduct light. Also, a re-emission of light from both photosynthetic systems and single neurons has been observed, which is called "delayed luminescence". This can be supposed as a possibility for dissipationless transfer of visual information to the human brain. In addition, a long-range Fröhlich coherence in microtubules can be a candidate for efficient transfer of light through "noisy" and complex structures of the human brain. From an informational point of view it is a legitimate question to ask how human brain can receive subtle external quantum information of photons intact when photons are in a quantum superposition and pass through very noisy and complex pathways from the eye to the brain? Here, we propose a coherent model in which quantum states of photons can be rebuilt in the human brain.
