Quantum mechanics in the brain
The dual-aspect monist conjecture launched by Pauli and Jung in the midth century will be couched in somewhat formal terms to characterize it more concisely than by verbal description alone. After some background material situating the Pauli—Jung conjecture among other conceptual approaches to the mind—matter problem, the main body of this paper outlines its general framework of a basic psychophysically neutral reality with its derivative mental and physical aspects and the nature of the correlations that connect these aspects. Some related approaches are discussed to identify key similarities to and deviations from the Pauli—Jung framework that may be useful for cross-fertilization. The question of how the mental and the physical are related to one another is likely as old as humans are pondering the human condition. Its advent in modern Western philosophy is usually appointed to the work of Descartes, who coined the notions of res cogitans and res extensa to refer to two fundamental substances. A key point of difficulty in this framework is a direct interaction between the mental and the physical, which is problematic for a number of reasons.
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Stapp is a leading quantum physicist who has given particularly careful thought to the implications of the theory that lies at the heart of modern physics. The book is divided into four sections. Key foundational and somewhat more technical papers are included in the second part, together with a clear exposition of the "orthodox" interpretation of quantum mechanics. The third part addresses, in a non-technical fashion, the implications of the theory for some of the most profound questions that mankind has contemplated: How does the world come to be just what it is and not something else? How should humans view themselves in a quantum universe?

Bem would be explained in a natural rationally coherent way if the supposedly ramdom element of orthodox quantum mechanics were, under favorable experimental conditions. A response to a recent paper in FOP by Robert Griffiths that claims that faster-than-light transfer of information does not occur in his "Consistent Quantum Theory".
Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics
It is widely accepted that consciousness or, more generally, mental activity is in some way correlated to the behavior of the material brain. Since quantum theory is the most fundamental theory of matter that is currently available, it is a legitimate question to ask whether quantum theory can help us to understand consciousness. Several approaches answering this question affirmatively, proposed in recent decades, will be surveyed. There are three basic types of corresponding approaches: 1 consciousness is a manifestation of quantum processes in the brain, 2 quantum concepts are used to understand consciousness without referring to brain activity, and 3 matter and consciousness are regarded as dual aspects of one underlying reality.
Nobody understands what consciousness is or how it works. Nobody understands quantum mechanics either. Could that be more than coincidence?
Science addresses questions that can be answered, potentially, through empirical investigation. What causes schizophrenia, and how should it be treated? Can nuclear power help us overcome climate change? What are the causes of war, and how can we end it? Examples and these are of course debatable, some philosophers and scientists insist that science can answer all questions worth asking : Why is there something rather than nothing? Does free will exist? How does matter make a mind?
