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- We are glad to welcome MSc in Neuroscience student James Harwood to the Unit

He has joined the Bolam lab to undertake his first MSc project under supervision of Dr. Tommas Ellender. James will be studying the properties of thalamostriatal connections using optical stimulation of thalamic afferents, in vitro recording of striatal neurons and immunocytochemistry.
