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 Tim Viney

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Tim Viney to the Unit. Tim has joined Peter Somogyi's Groupas an MRC Career Development Fellow to explore the spike timing of identified hippocampal neurons in combined electrophysiological and microscopic experiments.

Tim joins us after completing his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Botond Roska at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research in Basel, Switzerland. Tim's PhD project involved studying the structure and function of neural circuits in the retina: "The diverse roles of inhibition in identified neuronal circuits."
