Quantum structure and human thought

Behav Brain Sci. 2013 Jun;36(3):274-6. doi: 10.1017/S0140525X12002841.


We support the authors' claims, except that we point out that also quantum structure different from quantum probability abundantly plays a role in human cognition. We put forward several elements to illustrate our point, mentioning entanglement, contextuality, interference, and emergence as effects, and states, observables, complex numbers, and Fock space as specific mathematical structures.
