A Course of Twelve Elementary Lectures on Galvanism free pdf Excerpt from A Course of Twelve Elementary Lectures on Galvanism The Lectures which now, for the first time, are brought before the public through the medium of the press, are arranged in nearly the same order as that in which I am in the habit of delivering them. I have, however, introduced some few experiments whose resulting phenomena are not sufficiently striking to be introduced with advantage at the lecture table- and there are some that I have not had an opportunity of repeating: such, for instance, as those on the heads and trunks of oxen, and on the human body. I have, however, had an opportunity of Galvanizing the bodies of four young men, who were drowned by falling through the ice, at Woolwich- but two hours having been occupied, by the usual routine of medical treatment, before the batteries were employed, there was not the remotest chance of obtaining beneficial results. Notwithstanding this loss of time, however, the bodies, with the exception of one, were still alive to the Galvanic influence. Some of the four opened their eyes and moved the lips- and one of them bent the elbow when the cur rent traversed the arm from the shoulder to the hand. But no motions of the chest could be produced by any applications of the battery that were tried. Throughout the whole of the course, I have selected such facts only, as best suited my purpose, and arranged them in that order which appears to me best calculated for teaching the rudiments of the science- and in order to keep in view the analogy which subsists in the phenomena emanating from different sources of electric action, I have introduced several original experiments never before published.
