Deric's MindBlog, which began in Feb. 2006, reports on new ideas and work on mind, brain, and behavior, as well as random curious stuff. 

Mind Lectures, Writings, and podcasts. "The I Illusion" and "The Beast Within" have been two of the most popular ones.

About Me This section contains personal history, and ancestors and family history. The first 35 years of my professional life was devoted to studying vision. I prepared this graphic social and scientific history of the Bownds Laboratory for a laboratory reunion over the last weekend of May 2012, on the occasion of my 70th birthday. Pictures of the reunion can be found here and of a Social/Musical held at my Twin Valley home here. This talk describing the contributions of my laboratory (from 1968 to 1998) to understanding how light changes into a nerve signal in our eyes was given on May 14, 2013 to the McPherson Eye Research Institute seminar at the University of Wisconsin, . This personal biography was written in the summer of 2012.
