Publisher's Summary

Neuromorphic chips aim to mimic the nervous system's wiring to create technology that could restore human vision; lightning continues to amaze researchers with its unexpected complexity; physical differences in the brains of men and women may merit sex-specific treatments for psychiatric disorders; a rarely-discussed disease can cause blindness and heart problems; and physicists seek to create black holes in the comfort of their own laboratories.
