Neuroscientists are using virtual reality systems, combined with other advances such as new molecular genetic tools and brain-recording technologies, to reveal how neuronal circuits process and act on visual information. The Web extra at http://youtu.be/e_BxdbNidyQ is an overview video showing the FlyVR system in operation, including four example experiments.
