Quantum cognition uses only the mathematical basis of quantum theory to inspire and formalize models of cognition that are superior to models based on traditional probability theory. “Superior” means a better account of empirical data and/or increased explanatory power. But,to date, no study has attempted to explore neural implementations of such “quantum-like” information processing in the brain. The < World Journal of Neuroscience > from scientific researchpublishing demonstrates that neural population coding of information with nonlinear neural response functions can account for such “quantum” information processing in decision-making and cognition. It is also shown that quantum decision theory is a special case of more general population vector cording theory. Future applications of the present theory in the rapidly evolving field of “psychophysical neuroeconomics” are also discussed.
