We are convinced that future breakthroughs in quantum biology will emanate from neuroscience, which offers numerous complex processes at the proper time and length scale to look for quantum effects. We are therefore investing in this direction for the long-term development of our research.
We are currently developing a state-of-the-art electrophysiology facility, consisting of optical microscopes (inverted and stereo), electronic micro manipulation, computer-controlled pA current amplifiers with data acquisition software and a modern laser-based micro-pipette fabrication device.
Ion-channels are the fundamental building blocks of brain’s electrical activity, providing the pathway for ion flux through the neuron’s membrane. There appear to be a number of processes in single-ion-channel electrophysiology that are promising when looked upon at the microscopic, quantum level.
