# Some remarks on an experiment suggesting quantum-like behavior of cognitive entities and formulation of an abstract quantum mechanical formalism to describe cognitive entity and its dynamics

@article{Conte2007SomeRO, title={Some remarks on an experiment suggesting quantum-like behavior of cognitive entities and formulation of an abstract quantum mechanical formalism to describe cognitive entity and its dynamics}, author={Elio Conte and Orlando Todarello and Antonio Federici and Francesco Vitiello and Michele Lopane and Andrei Khrennikov and Joseph P. Zbilut}, journal={Chaos Solitons \& Fractals}, year={2007}, volume={31}, pages={1076-1088} }

We have executed for the first time an experiment on mental observables concluding that there exists equivalence (that is to say, quantum-like behavior) between quantum and cognitive entities. Such result has enabled us to formulate an abstract quantum mechanical formalism that is able to describe cognitive entities and their time dynamics.

When quantum mechanics interacts with cognitive science

It is argued further that there is another class of traditional models – the class of geometric models of cognition that have a much longer tradition than the symbolic models and that real progress at the meeting between quantum mechanics and cognitive science could be made by unifying these geometric models with ideas from quantum theory.
