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 Steven

Steven Cuell graduated from Cardiff University in 2011 with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology. He has worked for two years as a research assistant with Dr Murray Horne and Prof John Pearce FRS, predominantly examining the extent to which mechanisms of associative learning explain spatial learning in rats, mice and pigeons. After graduating, Steve moved to the University of Oxford to work with Prof David Bannerman in the Department of Experimental Psychology, before commencing an MSc in Neuroscience, funded by a Wellcome Trust 4-year scholarship. As part of this course, he has spent four months working with Dr Jill O'Reilly at fMRIB.

Steve has joined the unit for five months as a member of Dr David Dupret's group, where he will be investigating hippocampal network activity during a spatial learning task in mice.
