Special thanks to Dr. Francois Ferriere at the Universite de Rennes 1 for letting me use the frog videos! I really didn't want to kill a frog. The sequence of the electrified frog was made at the request of Christine Blondel and Bertrand Wolff whose video on Galvani and the frog (in French!) can be found here:
