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.

Voltage imaging lands in the Unit!

This week Marco Canepari (INSERM, Grenoble, France) and Jeremy Graham (Cairn Research Ltd, UK) are visiting Marco Capogna to set up voltage imaging equipment that it will be used to optically record synaptic signals from single neurons of acute slices.
