How to run water maze on humans - and how not to.

Virtual water maze tasks have been around for many years now (e.g.
Sandstrom et al 1998), but if you've experienced actual virtual reality versions rather than ersatz versions you'll appreciate that there is a huge difference which can be quantified in terms of hippocampal theta activity (Cornwell et al 2008).  There is a good description of why these differences are seen in the Behavioral Neuroscience Tasks in Virtual Reality pages as well as explanations of why what you thought was Virtual Reality in some experiments really isn't and often elicits quite different search strategies from those found both in reality and higher quality representations.
