Professor Stuart Hameroff has been studying how the network of protein in living tissue, especially in neurons, processes information and control the brain activity. He consider the microtubules in neurons as a very important key to understand brain activity. He proposed the Penrose-Hameroff model of consciousness in which consciousness is given by the orchestrated objective reduction of superposition of quantum coherence in microbubules with Roger Penrose (Professor, Mathematics Institute, Oxford University).
