ABSTRACT
Hodgkin, Alan Lloyd (1914-1998) was a British physiologist, a scientist who studies how different parts or organs of an organism work together to achieve a particular function. He and his colleague, the English physiologist Andrew Fielding Huxley, won the 1963 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for their detailed description of the transmission of nerve impulses. They shared the prize with the Australian physiologist Sir John Carew Eccles, who conducted separate research on nerve transmission.
