Professor Hameroff’s heavily-publicized collaborations with the renowned physicist Sir Roger Penrose have given rise to a controversial theory: the orchestrated objective reduction theory of consciousness. Professor Hameroff is a doctor of medicine, a professor of anesthesiology and psychology, as well as associate director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at University of Arizona.
