This experiment is not quite what you think.  It used only 60,000 rat
neurons (equivalent to the brain of a fruit fly), whereas a whole rat brain
has 1,000,000.  Also, it interacts with the chip through a small number of
electrodes (I think as few as 60, but it could be more).

That it runs into things could also be a consequence of limited sensory
data and/or poor motor control.
