In this matter Galvani showed much courage as an inventive genius.
Galvani and Volta were Italian scientists of the 18th century.
Galvani thought he saw the electric quality in the tissues of the frog.
Galvani came to the conclusion that there is such a thing as animal electricity.
I 102 felt as surprised as Galvani was when he touched the leg of the frog with his scalpel.
Galvani did not know that he had discovered a new source of electricity.
Galvani had selected, then, one of the cardinal or turning-point subjects in comparative anatomy.
Galvanism is the action of electricity upon animal bodies, and is so called from the name of its first discoverer, Galvani.
The discoveries of Galvani and Volta at once set leading scientists at work.
The twitching of a frog's flesh as it touched a certain kind of metal led Galvani to invent the electric battery.
