  1. Yes, they can. There is a theory that the robin (Erithacus rubecula) can hold electrons in its eye in a state of quantum entanglement and thus form a system that is sensitive to ultra-small changes in the earth's magnetic field. This feature helps birds navigate accurately. ( physicscentral.com )

    There is also a suggestion that the olfactory mechanism uses some quantum-level effects. ( wikipedia.org )

  2. Quantum biology can potentially add a whole layer of knowledge about energy processes in living systems from the point of view of quantum mechanics, and subsequently become a theoretical basis for the practical application of such knowledge.

    Quite, because quantum mechanics is applicable to a large number of brain functions, ranging from the work of sensations like sight and smell to the details of the work of intracellular systems.

  3. I'm afraid that there are still more questions than answers in quantum biology and especially neuroscience. There are data on the use of quantum effects by plants and a small amount of data on the same birds, hidden under the loud name “quantum compass”.�

    There is also so far Fischer's theory about the probability of using entanglement and quantum computing in the brain, which opens up the theory of quantum consciousness to us.
