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.

Bolam Family Walk for Parkinson's

The extended Bolam Family attempted to do the 8 mile Oxford Parkinson's Walk on Sunday.  We all started off very enthisiastically, but the age range of 3 weeks to 59 years got the better of us, so after two miles, short-cuts were introduced, lunch taken and some of the very young members and one of the new mothers peeled off.  Four of us completed the walk including 3 month old Tarn. 

Any sponsorship would be gratefully received!
