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 back Professor Yannis Dalezios

We are pleased to welcome back Professor Yannis Dalezios from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Crete, for a sabbatical leave collaborative visit to Professor Peter Somogyi's Lab.

Professor Dalezios studies the synaptic interactions between neurons to reveal the organization of neural networks in the brain including cortical and subcortical oculomotor areas/nuclei, the neocortex and the hippocampus. His expertise in electron microscopy and statistics facilitates several projects and he also trains others in the Unit.
