First announcement of the discovery of the "rheoscopic frog" effect. It states that If the nerve or living muscle of a frog is suddenly dropped upon another living muscle so as to come in contact with its longitudinal and transverse sections, the first muscle will contract on account of the stimulation of its nerve due to the passage of a current derived from the second muscle (Ganot). The experiment goes under the above title.
