I would recommend looking at the book
Principles of Neural Science, 3rd ed.
Kandel, Schwartz, & Jessell
It's an introductory text that covers a lot of ground and should answer most
of your questions. If you need somewhat more detail, check out
Neurobiology, 3rd ed.
This one is somewhat harder to read if you don't have a biology background.
Hope this helps,
