Bologna

Luigi Galvani's monument in Piazza Luigi Galvani
(September 9, 1737 December 4, 1798) was an Italian physician, physicist and philosopher who had also studied medicine and had practiced as a doctor
In 1771, he discovered that the muscles of dead frogs legs twitched when struck by a spark.
This was one of the first forays into the study of bioelectricity, a field that still today studies the electrical patterns and signals of the nervous system.
