Camera footage of zebrafish swimming with a virtual fish. The virtual fish is reacting to the position of the real fish. Here, w=1, the virtual fish equally balances social and goal-oriented behavior. 

The Lab of Andrew Straw studies neural circuits and behavior at the University of Freiburg, Germany. By developing advanced technical systems such as virtual reality arenas, they investigate the mechanistic basis of visual behaviors such as navigation in Drosophila.
