I can help on point 1.  The Neurobiology class I'm currently taking uses two 
books, each of which has explanations of the visual cortex circuitry:
(In addition to retina.)  
1) From Neuron to Brain, John G Nicholls, A Robert Martin, Bruce G. Wallace,
Third Edition, 1992, Sinauer Associates.
2) Neurons and Networks, John E. Dowling, 1992, The Belknap Press of 
Harvard university Press. 
Both are pretty standard Neurobiology texts.
