how to move between brackets in visual studio

In JDeveloper and GVim and so many other tools, there are easy ways to jump from one bracket or parenthesis to the matching bracket or parenthesis on the other side (from opening to closing or closing to opening).

Further you can usually hold down shift key to select the text between the objects.

The behavior I'm looking for is alt+shift+{ and alt+shift+} in JDeveloper... but I need to figure out how to do it in Visual Studio.

I'm not interested in collapsing code regions. I'm interested in moving the cursor between brackets and parens with a keyboard command.

CTRL + ] used to work in Visual Studio. It appears that this key combination has been assigned to another menu item. You can add the Go To Brace menu option by customizing your menus. From there, you may be able to assign your own shortcut under Tools Menu -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboard.

Ctrl+Alt+Arrow with resharper turns out to be my favorite way to extend, but ctrl+] does toggle between brackets.
