Here's a nice virology and immunology resource.
I totally agree.
Vincent racaniello's virology blog is a very helpful resource, and he has extensive courses on virology and influenza, was well as several podcasts.
This one is a basic introduction to neuroscience. It's called "Neuroscience For Kids" but the material is actually quite in-depth and it has a lot of information that anyone who is new to the field would probably be interested in.

This animated presentation of *unseeable biology* by Drew Berry may be of interest. Amazing stuff.
and by David Bolinski
I need some books about Neuroscience/Neuroanatomy in order to learn this science independently, I have got some ones in computer but I am not sure if they are good books:
Which good book would you advise me? Maybe they are good ones but perhaps there are better books somewhere
Neuroscience, 2nd edition
Editors: Dale Purves, George J Augustine, David Fitzpatrick, Lawrence C Katz, Anthony-Samuel LaMantia, James O McNamara, and S Mark Williams.
Principles of Neural Science, Fifth Edition (Principles of Neural Science (Kandel)) 5th Edition
Editors: Eric R. Kandel , James H. Schwartz, Thomas M. Jessell, Steven A. Siegelbaum, A. J. Hudspeth
Just read what you like, and compare a couple of books, and wikipedia etc to see if they all say the same thing.
And which book would you advise me where I can find the detailed anatomical description of various structures of brain (hippocampus, amygdala and etc.) with their functions? In those four books are scarce information about various structures.
Here is a Neuroscience book I really liked when I read it in the 1980's.
Synaptic Organization of the Brain by Gorden Sheppard (and others).
Apparently at least some reviewers still like it (5th edition).
Its not really a textbook, but more like a book to read after getting the textbook introduction to brain/nervous system parts, neuron cell biology, and neuronal physiology.
To me, its most interesting aspects elaborates on the textbook knowledge to describe how neurons take their varied inputs and compute their output. This involves understanding the cable properties of neurons (used for modeling the electrophysiology of the neuronal branches) and how local brain circuits compute their outputs. This stuff is at the heart of how a nervous system does its work.
I like the book The Major Transitions in Evolution.
It discusses big evolutionary transitions from perspectives of hierarchical organization and information.
Advanced book, requires some pre-existing level of knowledge of evolution.
Here are the notes/slides for Campbell's Biology if you don't want to go through the whole book:
