To cut a long story short: it formed by a consolidation of nerve cells. Apparantly all animals have similar nerves cells, we just have more, making us more advnced in intelligence. For a good review of the evolution of the brain I recommand "The brain" by Michael O'Shea.

I advise you organise the tests as a flow chart to make it more manageable. Those are too many tests to list in a post and all of the info would be available online and in lab manuals/textbooks. There are a number of lectures notes published online on this and the NHS also releases fact files on ide...
