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.

A warm welcome to Foad

We are pleased to welcome Mr. Foad Mohamed to the Unit. Foad is an undergraduate student studying for his BMBCH medical degree at Pembroke College, and has joined the Magill Group to undertake his Final Honours School research project. Foad is using light microscopy techniques to define molecular heterogeneity in neurons of the external globus pallidus in dopamine-intact and Parkinsonian brains.
