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 Megan Dowie

Megan is joining the Bolam Group as the Girdlers' New Zealand HRC Postdoctoral Fellow. Her research will focus on the analysis of populations of striatal interneurons, initially by electron microscopy.

Megan completed her PhD in Pharmacology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, under the supervision of Associate Professor Michelle Glass. Her research has centred around the endocannabinoid system in Huntington's disease, in both transgenic mice and post-mortem human tissue, to evaluate the putative pathological nature of changes occurring in this neuromodulatory system.
