We are pleased to welcome Mr. Adam Tudor Jones to the Unit. Adam has joined the Magill Group as an MRC-funded D.Phil. student and will study the functional organization of the basal ganglia and related thalamocortical circuits using advanced electrophysiological and anatomical techniques. Adam has just successfully completed a M.Sc. in Neuroscience at University College London, where his research project focussed on presynaptic NMDA receptors in cells impinging on cortical interneurons in the primary visual cortex.
