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.

Welcome back to István

We are delighted to welcome back István Lukács, a visiting medical student from the Medical University of Targu Mures, Romania where he finished his 4th year, to Prof. Peter Somogyi's laboratory for a 2 month visit. István was a previous winner of the Oxford Cajal Scholarship scheme. He joins a project on the synaptic connections of identified neurons in acute human cortical slices recorded in vitro by the group of Prof Gabor Tamas, a previous Unit member now in the University of Szeged, Hungary.
