I found two very interesting books, which cover both mentioned aspects.

The biophysical encoding of information is covered superbly in:
"Biophysics of Computation" Christof Koch, Oxford (1999)

Very nice thought experiments to how different forms of "thinking",
integration and "behaviour" can be achieve can be found in:
"Vehicles - Experiments in Syntehetic Psychology" Valentino Braitenberg,
MIT Press

Latter is a very nice, short booklet, which I would definetively

all the best, Chris
