Beaming into the world of rats

1 November 2012 Last updated at 09:54 GMT

A research team at the University of Barcelona has conducted an experiment that allows humans and rats to interact in a virtual environment.

The so-called 'Beaming' technology, allows a human in virtual reality head gear to view the rat in human form, whilst the rat experiences the human as a motorised robot.
