Galvani's Lab
Galvani's Lab
On two occasions in 1786, Luigi Galvani, in Bologna, observed dissected frogs' legs convulse when touched by metal scissors: once was during a thunderstorm, once when an electrostatic generator was nearby. His 1791 announcement that electrical energy was intrinsic to animal muscle influenced Volta.
