Niels Bohr, one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, suspected that it could provide insights into human psychology. Now a new field called quantum cognition is exploring how quantum math can explain some seemingly irrational human behavior.
Electrons can act as tiny magnets, and the magnetic field of each particle can influence the orientation of the magnetic fields of other particles around it. The strength of this interaction has now been measured.
