Symmetry Breaking in Morphogenesis
The cytoskeleton component known as microtubulin has received increased attention from researchers investigating cellular information processes and even consciousness studies, as the protein filament has unique properties that place it well outside the limitation of being a simple structural component of the cell. This cytoskeleton and locomotive component became particularly popular among quantum neurologists after doctors Stuart Hameroff and Roger Penrose delineated a means by which microtubules can theoretically store and process information using quantum mechanics. What's more, their model became one of the first applications of unified physics in biology, as discrete information processing events within microtubules were predicted to involve the Planck-scale fabric of spacetime itself, via a quantum gravitational mechanism.
