I need a book recommendation or, more properly, any source recommendation to know and understand more about the phenomena related to the brain, as far as we know how the brain works. I'm interested in the very structure the brain has and how it leads to what we experience. Due to the way biological processes happen, how the things we define for ourselves are related to each other. It would be cool if it adds more to the biophysics of those processes and the possible picture of their evolution, as well as the physical characteristics of those biological structures.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • $\begingroup$ I have been away from stackexchange for long if the question is not according to the site's guidelines please edit it or if you can make the question better please do it (I know I wasn't that good at it). I didn't find any other question or answer helping so I asked it, if there's any question or answer already that can help please add it into comments. $\endgroup$ – Nayan Jan 30 '17 at 17:16

    $\begingroup$ Your question would be a better fit on CognitiveSciences.SE. In fact your question is possibly a duplicate of this post. $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Jan 30 '17 at 18:28

    $\begingroup$ I'd agree with @Remi.b to check CogSci - the recommendations in the linked question will probably get most of what you want, but your question touches on a lot of areas that probably won't all be found in detail in the same book; you will probably find more on biophysics in a more basic neuroscience textbook like this question; I'd expect more coverage of evolution of behavior in an Animal Behavior textbook. $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Jan 30 '17 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ My other advice is that I'd recommend staying away from "evolutionary psychology" because that field is tainted with a lot of pseudoscience and disguised speculation, and it will be difficult to evaluate the claims critically without a lot of background knowledge. $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Jan 30 '17 at 18:36
  • $\begingroup$ @Remi.b the books suggested into the answers to that question possibly aren't answering the questions i do have, neither there's much of discussion about the books in the answer. I checked on CogSci.SE few simillar questions were there but the recommended books weren't really getting around what i want as I have mentioned in the question, and few were bit perspective based. $\endgroup$ – Nayan Jan 31 '17 at 6:16
