Modelling the human brain by modelling its evolutionary emergence

I ask for advice on the best newsgroup for discussing my modelling of the
human brain.
The strategy of that research project has been formulated as follows:

  * 'Modelling the information system 'Man' by modelling its evolutionary

This strategy was deemed to be necessary as the system 'Man' has become such
complex, because of its long evolutionary history and of its 'trial & error'
emergence procedure, that any modelling of that 'Information System Man' can
only be done in an effective way if the evolution of that information system
is considered at the same time.

As a consequence, the modelling procedure involved not only the information
system 'Man' but also the evolutionary process that created successive life
forms. My modelling involves therefore both the evolution of the information
system and the end result, the information system of Homo sapiens sapiens.

It has resulted in a research project, which aim is to define a modelling
for the information handling aspects of the system 'Man', in which all
aspects of human behaviour are considered, comprising emotional-,
irrational- and rational/cognitive behaviour patterns, in both awake- and
dream states, for individual and social behaviour. It is stated that this,
one, information system 'Man' handles all human activities. The involved
modelling comprises:
    * not only the functional aspects, Man's mind, i.e. how that system
observes, and reacts to, the environment and how it builds up, and uses via
recalls, an internal database from these observations and from genetically
transferred preferences for such behaviour, but also:
    * how the involved information items are stored and transferred in Man's
brain structure; the transfer taking place, in general, from the sensory
input towards the motor output.

For more details I may refer to my website mentioned below.
I welcome any suggestion.
