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 Sana

Sana Suri has joined the Unit to complete the second lab rotation of her M.Sc. in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. Sana will work in the group of Pete Magill, with the broad aim of elucidating the dopamine dependence of activity in the external globus pallidus. Sana’s past work was focussed on the imaging of correlates of neuronal function in humans (and so, we must collectively help Sana to see how the brain really works!*).
