“The volt Italian physicist (Alessandro Volta) multiform times after a experiment are: Galvani biological physical phenomenon is not correct, a frog flesh was means to furnish current, substantially a kind of fluid in a flesh automobile effect.”
“One day in 1780, a Italian anatomist Luigi Galvani (Luigi Galvani) do dissections of frogs, hands hold VGP-BPS10A/B all kinds of metallic equipment, inadvertently touched a thigh of a frog during a same time, a contraction muscles of frog legs during once a moment, as a stimulatory effect, as well as if only a steel instrument to! touch a frogs, a absence of such a reaction.”
“Galvanis find aroused great interest to physicists who contributed to repeat a experiment of Galvani, an attempt to find a approach to beget electricity.”
“Galvani believed that this phenomenon occurs since a body of a animal a arrange of inner era of electricity, that he called biopower.”
“Portrait of a Italian anatomist Luigi Galvani, since a anatomy of a frog, when he detected a bio-power as well as famous, please note that a lower part of this portrait of a half-frog”
“Mary Moriarty Galvani, who died on Friday at the ripe old age of 96, was one of those truly great figures.”

“At a plant in Indiana she met her late beloved husband Vincent Galvani, who would go on to develop the trigger for the atomic bomb.”
