Elio Conte, born in Italy in 1946, is
currently professor of Psychophysiology at the graduate school of
Psychology, Department of Neurological and Psychiatric Sciences,
University of Bari,
Italy. He is a theoretical physicist, author of
about one hundred fifty publications at international level. His research
fields are on derivation of quantum mechanics by Clifford algebra,
applications of quantum mechanics in analysis of perceptive and cognitive
functions in humans, application of the methods of theoretical physics in
biology and medicine.
Elio Conte is author of some theories and experimental
results of basic significance. Starting with 1983 he has worked on
application of quantum mechanics at cognitive level and in years 20032009
he has reached the first direct experimental evidence that mental states
follow quantum mechanics during perception and cognition, using ambiguous
figures and some cognitive anomalies as conjunction fallacy. These results
have been obtained in collaboration with Andrei Yuri Khrennikov (University
of VaxjoSweeden), Orlando Todarello and Antonio Federici (University of
Bari), and Joseph P. Zbilut (Rush University Chicago, USA) who died before
of his time in January 2009. He has also produced a complete derivation of
standard quantum mechanics by using Clifford algebra, and for the first time
he has given a description and algebraic explanation of the well known
mechanism of wave function reduction in quantum mechanics using this
algebraic framework. His general theory moves on the lines previously
delineated by Yuri Orlov on the logical origins of quantum mechanics. It is
articulated on the basic statement that the we may use the basic algebraic
Clifford elements to represent mental variables.
