Neutral atoms do not feel the Lorentz force caused by an external magnetic field. It is however now possible to create artificial magnetic fields, which give rise to typical effects exhibited by charged particles. An overview of the recent theoretical and experimental investigations is reported with special focus on the new physical features exhibited by spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensates.
