Richard Keynes was a British physiologist and great-grandson of Charles Darwin. He is known primarily for his pioneering work on the mechanisms underlying the conduction of nerve signals. Early in his career, he worked with the giant nerve fibers of squid which helped him discover how nerve impulses are transmitted in all animals. In later research, he determined how electric eels project electric fields outside their bodies.
