Introduction
R. R. Poznansky is known for elucidating the starburst amacrine cell’s role in retinal direction selectivity with Australian neuroscientist William R. Levick in 1992. He is a co-author of the book "Mathematical Neuroscience" with Polish mathematician Stanislaw Brzychczy published in 2013. In 2020 together with the Swedish quantum chemist Erkki J. Brändas developed "panexperiential materialism" as a new ontology for understanding the mind based on the material composition of consciousness.

A macro-quantum model is developed to describe spontaneous processes in terms of computable equations. The resultant macro-quantum wave equation (Schrödinger-type equation) is solved via a Madelung transformation to yield a complex-valued solution whose real part gives the macro-quantum potential energy. We show that the mechanism responsible for s...

We have further developed the two-brains hypothesis as a form of complementarity (or complementary relationship) of endogenously induced weak magnetic fields in the electromagnetic brain. The locally induced magnetic field between electron magnetic dipole moments of delocalized electron clouds in neuronal domains is complementary to the exogenous e...

We present an example of mind-body interaction through the psychophysiology of chronic stress. We show the dynamic pattern of effects on the mind and body associated with chronic stress response and recognize how the mind coordinates the body systems to sustain internal equilibrium for optimal function. In fact many other bodily illnesses are cause...

If the physical mind is located in quantized space of the brain then how does the physical mind become the self? This remains an unresolved problem. It can be restated as how mental representations or mental states get their informational contents, and of doing so in terms of the natural functions brain states have? We call these natural brain func...

We are pleased to launch the inaugural issue of the Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience (JMN), published by Neural Press. Why multiscale neuroscience and not multilevel neuroscience? Scales are a more neutral description than levels and refer to dimensions and boundaries instead of distinct forms of organization. The concept of level can denote a ma...

Stress alters neuroendocrine, autonomic, and behavioral processes to cope well with perceived threats that compromise subjective wellbeing. Just as the perception of risk can change the structure and function of brain circuitry, which may result in enduring behavioral changes. There needs to be a greater understanding of how the brain reacts to str...

The current action potential paradigm considers that all components beneath the neuron membrane are inconsequential. Filamentary communication is less known to the ionic signal transmission; recently, we have proposed that the two are intimately linked through time domains. We modified the atom probe-connected dielectric resonance scanner to ope...

It is a century-old view that experiential philosophies are not compatible with materialism. In the contextual inconsistency with the reality, that matter is inertly acquiring only a single physical state, philosophers have gained ground in metaphysical beliefs, including dualism, monism, and idealism. We show that a new foundational self-referenti...

This is a short introduction as a complement to the Preface, for those not familiar with the current view of pre-existing quantum biology as a re-evolving subject and its influences concerning the theme “quantum boundaries of life.” We suggest that the information-based quantum Darwinism encapsulates macroscopic quantum potentialities via self-refe...

Using steady-state electrical properties of non-ohmic dendrite based on cable theory, we derive electrotonic potentials that do not change over time and are localized in space. We hypothesize that clusters of such stationary, local and permanent pulses are the electrical signatures of enduring memories which are imprinted through nonsynaptic plasti...

Based on the energy conservation law, a new formula for the photon momentum was proposed in [1]. In this work, some defects of this new proposal are discussed. It is shown that this new proposal can lead to negative energy of photons. In addition, the group velocity of massive particles exceeds the light velocity which violates the causality princi...

The current state of knowledge portrays either a reductionist view of consciousness, for ex. , the seat of consciousness is characterized as quantum gravity affects in microtubules (of the cytoskeleton) or a more recent viewpoint is that consciousness is the result of a large-scale integration of information in the brain. The reductionist theories...

The starburst amacrine cell (SAC) plays a fundamental role in retinal motion perception. In the vertebrate retina, SAC dendrites have been shown to be directionally selective in terms of their Ca2+ responses for stimuli that move centrifugally from the soma. The mechanism by which SACs show Ca2+ bias for centrifugal motion is yet to be determined w...

Since it is not possible in practice to directly solve infinite systems, an infinite system is replaced by a finite system. Such a transition from infinite to finite systems is known as truncation. One of the ways to describe the truncation process is to assume a projection from an infinite-dimensional space onto its finite-dimensional subspaces. T...

The development of a framework that underpins the understanding of infinite systems in general requires a number of assumptions and conditions to be made with respect to the topology and vector spaces. This chapter concludes with a definition of stability of solutions of infinite systems.

Optical imaging of dendritic calcium signals provided evidence of starburst amacrine cells exhibiting calcium bias to somatofugal motion.
