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.
