Jeffrey C. Magee studied both zoology and philosophy at Louisiana State University (LSU) and then went on to earn a PhD in physiology from Tulane University. During postdoctoral research at Baylor College of Medicine and then back at LSU, where he was on the faculty for 25 years, Magee made considerable contributions to the science of the mind, elucidating many of the ways in which the physical properties of nerve cells enable them to process and store information.  In 2006 he joined Janelia where he works on the production of biophysically based explanations of the information-processing and storage capabilities of single neurons as well as small neuronal networks.
