Are there any books on innate behaviors, where in the brain are they stored and how are they programmed?

Asked by Questionsaboutstuff (265points) November 23rd, 2012

When I say how are they programmed I mean how is that programmed set up, so if you are innately scared of spiders how is it programmed in the brain to understand when you seen a spider?

Fear of spiders is a phobia and learned. You are not innately scared of spiders.

Innate behavior would be, not breathing underwater, babies don’t have to be taught not to breathe underwater when swimming.
