David Nachmansohn was born March 17 1899 in Jekaterinoslav, Russia (now Dnjetropetrowsk) and died November 2, 1983 in New York. He worked on the biochemistry of muscle in Otto Meyerhof's laboratory. He moved to Paris in 1933. He discovered that the electric fish tissue contained exceedingly high concentrations of acetylcholineesterase. In 1940, Nachmansohn, together with Wilhelm S. Feldberg and Alfred Fessard, provided the first unequivocal evidence for the electrogenic action of acetylcholine. Nachmansohn moved to New York in 1942 at Columbia University.
