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.

News- Unit pushes limits in the Town and Gown 10 km race.

The Unit contributed again a host of fine athletes and results to this year's 10 km Town and Gown fun charity run supporting the Muscular Distrophy Campaign. On the 15th of May, Kristina Detzner (53.59), Michael Crump (56.04) Kathryn Newton (59.56), Melanie Ludlow (1.01.52) Judith van Andel (49.59), Eleftheria Pissadaki (55.29), Peter Somogyi (53.10) and Robert Stewart (38.25) joined over 3000 runners in the annual event. From the two teams The MRC Express and The MAGYARS, Robert Stewart came in first as 59th overall at 38.25. Fastest girl was Judith van Andel at 49.59.

One year on, prizes took their toll on the Director, and he was down 17 sec on last year! Peter Somogyi finished 1271st at 53:10 as a member of The MAGYARS. He was beaten by other team members, son Balazs coming 72nd at 38:48, daughter Lilla at 435th at 45:38 and son Levente coming in 932nd at 49:55, while daughter-in-law Claire finished her second race 1923th at 58:36.
