This is an historical archive of the activities of the MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit (MRC ANU) that operated at the University of Oxford from 1985 until March 2015. The MRC ANU established a reputation for world-leading research on the brain, for training new generations of scientists, and for engaging the general public in neuroscience. The successes of the MRC ANU are now built upon at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford.

Congratulations to Miroslawa!

Miroslawa Manko successfully defended (only minor corrections have been requested by the examiners) her D.Phil. thesis entitled: "Role of intercalated and NPY-expressing cells in neuronal circuit of the amygdala" on the 24th of August 2012. Miroslawa was supervised by Dr. Marco Capogna. Her internal examiner was Dr. Ed Mann (DPAG, Oxford), and her external examiner was Prof. Kaspar Vogt (Biozentrum, Basel, Switzerland). Miroslawa will start working in the laboratory of Dr. Ron Stoop (Dept. Psychiatry, University of Lausanne, Switzerland) supported by an EMBO post-doctoral fellowship from November 2012.
