Karl Pribram

Karl Pribram (born 19 February, 1919 in Vienna, Austria) was trained as a neurosurgeon. A long time professor at Stanford University he did pioneering work on the elucidation of the cerebral cortex. To the general public he is better known for the holonomic model of the functioning of the brain.

The holonomic model assumes that the information is stored not in cells but rather in interference patterns.

His other contributions include a quantum approach to neurophilosophy.
