Yes, thus why I found it so odd that your prior responses on this
topic delved into word twisting and nonsequitors.  At least this time
you responded to what I actually said, for which I thank you.

A hundredth of an inch is larger than many neurons, and only a
fraction of that distance need be traversed to affect potentials.
Quantum interactions can influence when and whether specific neurons
fire, though the collective result is no more superpositioned than
Schrodinger's cat - and, just like with the cat, the possible
resulting states are constrained by the medium through which this
influence takes place.
