  A short, educational stop-motion animation by Rebecca Celsi about galvanism, reanimation, and early theories of electricity, Music by Ben Celsi. Lectures on Electricity and Galvanism, in Their Physiological and Therapeutical Relations, Delivered at the Royal College of Physicians, Revised and Extended Golding Bird Longman, Brown, Green & Longmans, - Electricity - pages.

  In Shelley’s novel, Victor Frankenstein alludes to lightning and Galvanism as the basis for resurrecting a lifeless cadaver. Although Volta’s ideas had supplanted Galvani’s theory of animal electricity within the scientific community, the notion of electricity and reanimation still lingered in the air when Mary Shelley penned her novel. Luigi Galvani, (born September 9, , Bologna, Papal States [Italy]—died December 4, , Bologna, Cisalpine Republic), Italian physician and physicist who investigated the nature and effects of what he conceived to be electricity in animal discoveries led to the invention of the voltaic pile, a kind of battery that makes possible a constant source of current electricity.

The modern study of galvanic effects is called electrophysiology, the term galvanism being used only in historical contexts. Despite their differences in opinion, Volta named the phenomenon of the chemical generation of electricity "Galvanism" after Galvani.

On MaGalvani published a book about his work on animal electricity. It contained comprehensive details of. The discovery of the application is claimed by two persons, M.

"Perhaps a corpse would be re-animated; galvanism had given token of such things: perhaps the component parts of a creature might be manufactured, brought together, and endued with vital warmth," she wrote in the preface.
