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 Mark Condon

Mark is a current student on the MSc Neuroscience course, joining the Bolam group under the supervision of Dr Mena-Segovia for 3 months. His project aims to characterise the physiological effects of cholinergic transmission in the basal ganglia using juxtacellular recordings and neuroanatomical techniques. Mark received his BSc in Pharmacology from Newcastle University, where he studied the effects of early-life stress on gamma oscillations in the basolateral amygdala.
