You seem to be rather unacquainted with any details of neurobiology.  

I suggest you read G. Shepherd's "Neurobiology" or his "Synaptic
Organization of the Brain".  Although just a bit dated, now, both of
these have nice discussions of the notion of microcircuits, local
circuits, pathways, etc.

Actually any good neurobiology book will, also.
