John Carew Eccles was an Australian neurophysiologist who made significant contributions to understanding the functions of neurons and synapses in the nervous system. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1963, along with Sir Alan Hodgkin and Sir Andrew Huxley, for their discoveries concerning the ionic mechanisms involved in excitation and inhibition in the peripheral and central portions of the nerve cell membrane.

Eccles's research focused on the electrical properties of neurons and how they communicate with each other through synaptic connections. His work helped unravel the mechanisms of synaptic transmission and the role of neurotransmitters in transmitting signals between neurons.

He was particularly influential in studying the neuromuscular junction, which is essential for understanding how nerve impulses control muscle contractions. His research significantly contributed to the understanding of the fundamental processes underlying the functioning of the nervous system.
