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.

The White Helleborine is dead

The beautiful orchid that took 10-15 years to develop in front of our front door has been mowed down by the mechanised services that this University pays to create green deserts. I arrived too late, but I have again received a promise that it will not be mowed until we want it. I saved the other half of the wild flower meadow. Never give up!
