Archibald McIntyre, a grandson of Sir Edgeworth David (qv), was Professor of Physiology, Monash University, 1962-1978. His interests included the physiology of the nervous system and he made studies of reflexes, pathways in the spinal cord, both ascending and descending, and the plasticity of responses of the spinal cord. He was part of a group which discovered electro-receptors in the platypus bill and later in the echidna snout. The Australian Physiological and Pharmacological Society has established the A K McIntyre Prize, awarded to members for significant contributions to Australian physiological and/or pharmacological science during their predoctoral and early postdoctoral years, in his honour.
