Neurosurgeon: we may have underestimated the neuron

I think he's saying that the brain is more of a quantum computational device, rather than a bionano one.

Anyway, I have my doubts about all of this. He seems to be saying, "Quantum mechanics is a mystery. The brain is a mystery. Ergo, there must be a relationship between the two," without much supporting evidence. The fact that a microscopic organism can swim without having neurons does not necessarily lead to evidence supporting his main claim that "consciousness" is a quantum mechanical thing.
