comment books for beginners in research in mathematical biology
This is far too broad to answer effectively. We don't know anything about which specific areas you are interested in or what your level of ability is, aside from that you haven't had any mathematical modeling coursework. Most books would probably be accessible for someone with a background in ODEs, and I'm sure you've had experience with those.

comment Is brain transplantation possible?
@ChrisStronks Now I think it's too broad, unfortunately. There's a laundry list of assumptions that have to be built into any answer, and so narrowing it down to whether one would want the CNS to be functional, be able to vascularize itself, or to maintain histocompatibility would be helpful, but even bearing that narrowing of the question, this is still really a fanciful idea.

@WYSIWYG I think you're being a bit hasty here. There is an extensive body of literature on the physics (and psychophysics) of vision that can be brought to bear here.
