I've been watching the Science of the Soul on the History International channel. I found several of the segments interesting including work being down at a Virginia hospital on near death experiences. Also fMRI done on people in so called vegetative states was fascinating, when asked to imagine something their brains lit up like normal patients.
They also had Dr. Hameroff, an anesthesiologist who became interested in the science of consciousness because when patients are giving anesthesia for surgery, they have a very different experience from just going to sleep. They don't feel pain, they don't dream, and there is no sense of the passage of time. Dr Hameroff decided to look at where people go when they are sedated. I find his theory of microtubules in the brain and consciousness interesting.

I don't know enough about the subject to really give you an educated answer. However, I would tend to classify the study of the soul as Metaphysics, not Quantum.

You've got to look into it...you'll be amazed. It's absolutely quantum physics...no if's, and's or but's. If you have OnDemand you can catch it on the Science Channel from the series Through the Wormhole. It's so cool you'll die.
