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 Hua, Jennifer and Natalie

We are pleased to welcome Dr Hua Zhang, Dr Jennifer Kaufling, and Dr Natalie Doig to the Unit. Hua has joined us as a Research Technician, and Jenny and Natalie have joined the Unit as Postdoctoral Scientists. They will work in the group of Peter Magill, and their research shares the broad aim of defining the neuronal substrates of a functional dichotomy in the external globus pallidus of the dopamine-intact brain.
