The mathematical physicist Roger Penrose first proposed that quantum effects feature in human cognition in his 1989 book “The Emperor’s New Mind”. I have been in love with this book since I first read it over ten years ago: original, dense and provocative. Since then, a number of physicists, biochemists and neuroscientists have been studying the possible connection between quantum mechanics and human consciousness. (Courtesy Eduardo Lage)
