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- Welcome to Artur Koroknai

Mr. Artur Koroknai has joined Peter Somogyi's lab for his month long scholarship under the Oxford Cajal Scholarship scheme. He won the Ramon y Cajal essay competition on the organisation of the brain.

The title of his essay was: "Tükrözi-e az idegrendszer szerkezete és működése fejlettségi szintjét? - Does the structure of the nervous system reflects its developmental level? Or... Why humans are causing the sixth great extinction of life in the history of the Earth?"

Artur will matriculate next year in the Franciscan Gimnázium of Szentendre, Hungary, a town where Prof Somogyi studied.

In Oxford, he learns concepts of brain organisation and participates in the analysis of neuronal circuits in the hippocampus using microscopic methods.
