“Biologists Discover Tiny Neural Computers in the Brain”
“Neuroscientists have learned that dendrites do more than just provide passive wiring in the brain. These nerve cell connectors also process information, essentially functioning as tiny computers. Our brains, it would appear, pack more computing power than we assumed.”

“In a new study published in Nature, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill demonstrated that dendrites do more than transfer information — they also actively process information, effectively multiplying the brain’s computing power.

“‘Suddenly, it’s as if the processing power of the brain is much greater than we had originally thought,’ noted study co-author Spencer Smith through a press release. ‘Imagine you’re reverse engineering a piece of alien technology, and what you thought was simple wiring turns out to be transistors that compute information.’

Previous research showed that dendrites use certain molecules to autonomously generate electrical spikes. But scientists weren’t sure if these spikes were simply the result of normal brain activity.”

“The researchers realized that the dendritic spikes were happening selectively — and they depending on the visual stimulus — an indication that the dendrites were processing information about what the mice were seeing. And after developing a visualization technique, the researchers showed that dendrites fired spikes while other parts of the neurons did not. This meant that the spikes were the result of local processing within the dendrites. Subsequent mathematical models validated this interpretation.

‘All the data pointed to the same conclusion,’ Smith said. ‘The dendrites are not passive integrators of sensory-driven input; they seem to be a computational unit as well,'” quoting io9.

“Discovery of quantum vibrations in ‘microtubules’ inside brain neurons supports controversial theory of consciousness”
Source: Elsevier
A review and update of a controversial 20-year-old theory of consciousness claims that consciousness derives from deeper level, finer scale activities inside brain neurons. The recent discovery of quantum vibrations in “microtubules” inside brain neurons corroborates this theory, according to review authors. They suggest that EEG rhythms (brain waves) also derive from deeper level microtubule vibrations, and that from a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions.
