    Abstract:
    By using electrical brain stimulation to deliver both 'virtual' tactile cues and rewards to freely roaming rats, Talwar et al. have been able to instruct animals remotely to navigate through complex mazes and natural environments they have never visited before. These results provide both an elegant alternative way to train animals and a new approach to study basic neurophysiological principles of animal navigation.
