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 Gengyu!

We are pleased to welcome Mr. Gengyu Li to the Unit. Gengyu is a MSc student in Pharmacology at the Hertford College and he will be a DPhil student from Oct 2010 in the group of Dr Marco Capgona. Gengyu will characterise the spatial distribution of synaptic GABAergic responses and explore their functional role in cellular integration.
