Abstract:

Continues an earlier discussion of the state of understanding of the brain, and the nature of the breakthrough that would warrant the designation "decade of the brain". Discusses current theories linking consciousness and quantum mechanics, taking a sceptical standpoint but inviting debate. Acknowledges a strong case for some mechanism additional to the classical neural net, probably comprising microtubules as photonic waveguides.
