The Form of Consciousness

Andrew Duggins

A quantum mechanical formalism of neurodynamics is proposed, in which the experience attributable to a single neuron is related to its instantaneous firing rate. In that the experience afforded can only be quantified within statistical limits from the incidence of spikes across multiple trials, consciousness remains inaccessible to direct measurement. In this way, the model disambiguates subjective experience from objective neural properties.
