How does the brain work ?

How does the brain work? I know all thought is based on association, which is formed in a grid of neurons and synapses - but when I (my ego) actively query myself for information, how does the brain transmit the query and how does it collect the memory? Do we know this yet? Please, use all the terminology you have.

Hi Lux. Thanks for your query and sing Health Care Magic.

You question is very simple, however, the answer is very complex.
Most of the information about how memory work and how information is retrieved is described in theories as its difficulty to give a definite proof. We definitely have considerable understanding about the physiology of brain, but, its far from complete.
It will be impossible for me go into the details here. You can follow the links below for further information.
