  Stuart Hameroff
Stuart Hameroff first became interested in the problem of consciousness as an undergraduate at the University of Pittsburgh.
In the early 1990´s the study of consciousness became increasingly popular, and he was strongly influenced by Roger Penrose´s The Emperor´s New Mind, 1989, and Shadows of the Mind, 1994, Oxford Press, concerning the possible role of quantum effects in consciousness.

Hameroff is an anesthesiologist, but he moonlights as one of the world's foremost authorities on tiny structures in our cells called microtubules.
Hameroff points out that microtubules in their quantum states may be encased in a gelatinous isolation.
Hameroff scoffs at such talk, preferring instead to muse that the backward-forward flexibility of time in quantum collapse accounts for our ability to act now, in real time, rather than just after the fact.

 Book review of Stuart Hameroff   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The American anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff wrote a book that ultimately deals with the co-evolution of consciousness and technology, but specifically it highlights one structure of living cells that had been previously neglected.
Hameroff shows how physical models from holorams to solitons can be used to model the physics of the brain.
Hameroff also believes that the roots of consciousness itself are in the cytoskeleton.

 Stuart Hameroff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stuart Hameroff, MD, is an anesthesiologist and professor at the University of Arizona known for his promotion of the scientific study of consciousness, and his speculative theories of the "mechanisms" of consciousness.
His early research suggested to him that part of the solution to the problem of understanding consciousness may lie in understanding the operations of microtubules in brain cells, operations at the molecular and supramolecular level.

Stuart Hameroff is also expected to be on the silver screen sharing his knowledge about alternate universes, human consciousness and the mind in two more upcoming flicks - a film about about mysticism produced by Madonna and in an upcoming boxed-set DVD edition of "The Matrix" trilogy of movies.
Hameroff's work with the University of Arizona's Center for Consciousness Studies has garnered worldwide attention in scientific and spiritual circles.
Hameroff says he was disappointed in the film overall because it "dropped the ball" on the quantum connection and concedes that many scientists he knows have been similarly unimpressed with the movie.

Penrose and Hameroff have proposed that consciousness in the human brain may be based on gravitational interactions and quantum superposition states of electrons in tubulin cages in microtubules.
Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff propose that Consciousness involves a Planck scale Decoherence of Quantum Superpositions that they call Orch OR in their paper entitled Orchestrated Objective Reduction of Quantum Coherence in Brain Microtubules: The "Orch OR" Model for Consciousness.

Dr Hameroff is best-known for his research on 'quantum consciousness', an alternative model to the accepted view of how consciousness arises.
With Sir Roger Penrose, Dr Hameroff has proposed that consciousness arises at the quantum level within structures inside neurons, known as microtubules.
As such, we recently had a short chat with Dr Hameroff to clarify some of these issues, and also to ask other questions related to the idea of 'quantum consciousness'.

Roger Penrose is the rabbit, of course, and Stuart Hameroff is the caterpillar.
In the last line of our paper, Pat and I characterize the Penrose/Hameroff thesis as "no better supported than any one of a gazzilion caterpillar-with-hookah hypotheses" (a line I wish I could take credit for, but alas, it was Pat's).
