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 Federica Vinciati

Federica Vinciati has joined the Unit as a D.Phil. student, and will work in the group of Pete Magill. The overall aim of Federica's thesis research is to elucidate the cell-type-specific contributions of striatal neurons to abnormal network activity in Parkinsonism. Federica comes to us from the University of Trieste, where her past research was focussed on the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation in humans to define the role of parietal cortex in the planning of reaching movements.
