Flatworms & Maze Memory

Can anyone help me locate information on an experiment I vaguely recall 
reading about years ago? Flatworms (?) were taught to execute a 2-D maze 
then chopped up and fed to 2nd group of flatworms who were supposed to 
acquire some knowledge about executing the maze. Hard to believe! Can't 
understand what mechanism for environmental experience could be transmitted 
in this manner. Have I lost my memory???

Thanks in advance...
