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 Pablo!

Dr. Pablo Henny, a former postdoctoral scientist in Professor Paul Bolam’s Group, has returned to the Unit as a Visiting Scientist for 3 months. During his visit, Pablo will continue work on a project that he started back in the Unit, namely to characterize the axon initial segment of midbrain dopaminergic neurons using electron microscopy.

Pablo is currently an Assistant Professor at the School of Medicine, Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile in Santiago, Chile, where he is responsible for the courses in Human Neuroanatomy.  He is also head of the Neuroanatomy Laboratory, and has a special interest in dopaminergic neurons and motoneurons. His visit and project are co-funded by a grant from the Chilean Agency for Science and Technology (FONDEYCT/CONICYT) and the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile.
