Add a memory or information about this object
Galvanic current was "of low intensity, but of considerable quantity, and produces very considerable results on temperature, and very appreciable chemical results."
Faradic current, or "induced electricity" has almost no chemical action, almost no effect on temperature, causes no burning feeling, no sensation of heat, like that produced by the simple current from the battery; but it produces marked contraction of the muscles, and a powerful action on the nerves of both motion and sensation.
