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 Marco!

Dr Marco Canepari visits Marco Capogna’s lab to optically record back-propagating action potential with calcium and voltage-imaging in interneurons of hippocampal slices.  This ongoing collaboration joins visitor’s expertise in high-resolution imaging techniques with the expertise of Marco Capogna on synaptic inhibition and interneuron physiology. Marco Canepari is a senior scientist at the Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience, Inserm, France. His visit to Oxford is supported by a short-term travel grant by the Physiological Society UK.
