Sir Bryan Harold Cabot Matthews (1906–1986) was a British physiologist. He was a pioneer of electrophysiology and electroencephalography, who, along with Edgar Douglas Adrian, (1889–1977) was the first to repeat and confirm the discoveries of Hans Berger, (1873–1941) who recorded the first human EEG in 1924. He graduated from King's College, Cambridge of which he was a fellow from 1929 until his death. His 1931 book, Electricity in Our Bodies is based on his lectures on electrophysiology and summarizes the results of his earlier research.

Matthews probably met the Hungarian biochemist, Albert Szent-Györgyi (1893–1986), the recipient of the 1937 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine who is credited with discovering vitamin C in Cambridge, where Szent-Györgyi was working as a Rockefeller Foundation fellow in 1927.
