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.

News- Farewell to Douglas Asede

Douglas leaves the Unit this week having spent ten months in the laboratory of Peter Somogyi completing his Pro Gradu thesis "The expression and effect of the NK1 receptor in GABAergic interneurons of the hippocampus". Douglas chose his project in neuroscience because of his fascination with the function of the brain and he carried out this research project as part of his University of Oulu (Finland) studies. He returns to Finland to complete his MSc Degree in protein Science and Biotechnology.

We congratulate Douglas on his successful time in the Unit and his success in obtaining a PhD Studentship (Neuroscience) at the University of Tubingen, Germany. We wish him well in his future scientific career.
