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.

This year's brood

Once again the nest box outside Prof. Somogyi's office window has been occupied. This year, as last, it is a pair of Great Tits that have chosen to raise their young here. There were 10 eggs laid, and they all hatched on the 3rd May- well timed for when a lot of Unit staff returned after the Royal Wedding holiday weekend.
