    galvanism (găl′və-nĭz′əm) n. 1. Direct-current electricity, especially when produced chemically. Also called voltaism. 2. Therapeutic application of direct-current electricity, especially the electric stimulation of nerves and muscle. [After Luigi Galvani.] galvanism (ˈɡælvəˌnɪzəm) n 1. (General Physics) obsolete electricity, esp when. Early Nineteenth Century Electrochemistry. In , only months after the English chemist William Nicholson succeeded in decomposing water into hydrogen and oxygen by electrolysis, Johann Ritter duplicated the experiment but arranged the electrodes so that he could collect the two gases separately, thus improving on the experiments of Carlisle and Nicholson.

William Snow Harris. Luigi Galvani (/ɡælˈvɑːni/, also US: /ɡɑːl-/, Italian: [luˈiːdʒi ɡalˈvaːni]; Latin: Aloysius Galvanus; 9 September – 4 December ) was an Italian physician, physicist, biologist and philosopher, who discovered animal electricity.

He is recognized as the pioneer of : 9 SeptemberBologna, Papal States. Luigi Galvani (September 9, –December 4, ) was an Italian physician who demonstrated what we now understand to be the electrical basis of nerve impulses. Inhe accidentally made frog muscles twitch by jolting them with a spark from an electrostatic : Mary Bellis.

While Volta theorized and later demonstrated the phenomenon of his “Galvanism” to be replicable with otherwise inert materials, Galvani thought his discovery to be a confirmation of the existence “animal electricity,” a vital force which gave life to organic matter.

He discovered accidentally that the leg of a frog twitched when touched with an electrically charged scalpel. Galvani's name is still associated with electricity in the words galvanism and galvanization. He denied Galvani’s theory of animal electricity and thus began one of science’s most famous disputes (in time, both theories would be proven right).

Volta’s findings led him to develop the first battery capable of a continuous electrical current, known as the Voltaic pile, in On Quantitative Measurement in Statical Electricity, and on some new Phenomena of Electrical Force.

Galvanism purported that animal electricity remained in tissue postmortem and could be stimulated through the application of electrical currents and lead, ultimately reanimating the dead.

The voltaic pile was the first electrical battery that could continuously provide an electric current to a circuit. It was invented by Italian physicist Alessandro Volta, who published his experiments in The voltaic pile then enabled a rapid series of other discoveries including the electrical decomposition (electrolysis) of water into oxygen and hydrogen by William Nicholson and Anthony.

Among the many scientists enthralled with this discovery was Alexander Von Humboldt, the subject of Andrea Wulf's The Invention of Nature. Humboldt became obsessed with so-called 'animal electricity' or Galvanism and began a long series of 4, experiments in which he cut, prodded, poked and electrocuted frogs, lizards, and mice.

In an application of his theory of animal electricity inLuigi Galvani suggested that an electrical fluid emanates from the human brain. Identifying life with electricity that has an organic source, Johann Wilhelm Ritter followed by equating animal and metalic electricity.
