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.

Unit Contributions to the 9th FENS Forum 2014, Milan, Italy.

Members of the Unit contributed to the FENS Forum 2014 held in Milan, Italy.

Dr. Peter Magill presented a symposium lecture, entitled "Functional dichotomy in the striatal-pallidal axis".


Posters given by Unit members at the Forum include:
