VR methods for neuroethology
This paper may be of interest to people here. Although not explicitly navigation based, a review of how VR techniques can be used in neuroscience is obviously a relevant topic. We have all seen Ofstad et al (2011 Nature) where Drosophila spatial behaviour is probed with a simple form of VR. It is therefore particularly interesting to see how related technologies are likely to open-up new avenues of exploration, especially in conjunction with genetic dissection.
