In the mids, some well-intentioned physicians tried a kind of electropathic therapy called galvanism, after Galvani. Basically, they ran currents of electricity through the bodies of some patients to try to relieve pain or cure diseases.   Professor Sharon Ruston surveys the scientific background to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, considering contemporary investigations into resuscitation, galvanism. Galvanism was thought at the time to have the power to animate animal muscle. The addition suggests that this might have been the secret power that Victor used to bring the Monster to life. The edition has more comments critical of Victor's decisions and actions, as Shelley attempted to respond to the harsher conservative critics who had. "Perhaps," Mary Shelley recalled of her talks with Lord Byron and Percy Shelley, "a corpse would be reanimated; galvanism had given token of such things." Illustration of Italian physician Luigi Galvani's experiments, in which he applied electricity to frogs legs; from his book De Viribus Electricitatis in Motu Musculari ().

I reminded you that we made use of three kinds of electricity; firstly, of friction or static electricity, Franklinism; secondly, of the electricity of chemical action, Voltaism, or Galvanism; and, thirdly, of induced electricity, Faradism:—that there had been certain difficulties in the employment of Franklinism, but that these difficulties.

In the s and s, Luigi Galvani conducted electricity experiments on dissected animals, and believed that he had discovered a distinct form of electricity which he called animal electricity. The modern study of galvanic effects is called electrophysiology, the term.

Galvanism is a term invented by the late 18th C. physicist and chemist, Alessandro Volta, to refer to the generation of electrical current by chemical action.

The term also came to refer to the discoveries of its namesake, Luigi Galvani, specifically the generation of electrical current within biological organisms and the contraction.Start studying Frankenstein Notes Chapters Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

‘Incomplete’ and ‘absolute’ death.
