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 Professors Capogna and Magill

All Unit members rejoice and congratulate Marco and Pete, the Unit Programme Leaders honoured in Oxford University’s Recognition of Distinction Awards for 2014:

Marco Capogna, Professor of Cellular Neuropharmacology

Peter J. Magill, Professor of Neurobiology 

These titles are fitting recognitions of Marco and Pete's outstanding research performances over many years in the Unit’s research programmes, pursuing multidisciplinary systems neuroscience and tackling cellular mechanisms of network operations in behaviourally- and clinically-important brain systems such as the basal ganglia and the temporal lobe mnemonic network.
