Galvanis discovery, 1780 (1894)

Galvani's discovery, 1780 (1894). Italian physiologist Luigi Galvani experimenting on frogs. A professor working in Bologna, Galvani (1737-1798) performed experiments to investigate the behaviour of muscles stimulated by electricity. Whilst investigating the effects of electrostatic stimuli applied to the muscles of frogs, Galvani discovered he could make a muscle twitch by touching the nerve with metal (a pair of scissors for example) without a source of electrostatic charge. He called this phenomenon animal electricity'. The term galvanise - to shock or excite into action, takes its name from him. From A Popular History of Science, by Robert Routledge, BSc (Lond.), F.C.S. [George Routledge & Sons, Limited. London, 1894]. (Colorised black and white print)

The Galvanis experimenting on frogs

Luigi Galvani and his wife Lucia demonstrating contractions of the muscles of the leg of a frog caused by electrical stimulation. The phenomenon was first noticed when his assistant touched an exposed nerve of the frog with a metal scalpel just as an electrostatic generator was emitting sparks. Galvani's wife and collaborator Lucia Galvani Galeazzi assisted her husband in his work. It is said that she first observed this phenomenon whilst he was in another room and alerted him to this strange occurrence. Galvani's theory of animal electricity was disputed by Alessandro Volta who suggested the electricity was produced by the conjunction of two dissimilar metals

Alessandro Volta, Italian physicist Featured Image

Alessandro Volta, Italian physicist

Italian physicist Count Alessandro Volta (1745- 1827) posing with his newly-invented battery or "Voltaic pile". Volta was the first to show that an electrical current flowed when two dissimilar metals were brought into contact.He became interested in electricity in 1786 following on the work of Galvani. In 1799 he made his first battery using silver and zinc discs with brine-soaked card between them. This produced a steady electric current and was the first reliable source of electricity.He drew up a list of of metals according to their propensity to generate electricity when stimulated. This is known as the electrochemical series. The battery shown here used zinc and copper discs
