He wanted to prove that he was stimulating the brain, but in fact he was not, because electrical current, however strong, would be blocked by the thick bones of the skull. He was actually stimulating the muscles directly.

Giovanni Aldini Right: Experiments by Aldini with electrical stimulation of cadavers using voltaic piles Luigi Rolandopioneer of central eletrical stimulation Anyway, Estimulacao, one of the unexpected consequences of Aldini's grotesque "experiments" was the gothic romance " Frankenstein, or Modern Prometheus ", published in Its writer, Englishwoman Mary Wollstonecraft Shelleywas exceedingly impressed with the possibility of generating life in dead tissues by means of electrical stimulation.

Many serious scientists as well as inumerable charlatans became intrigued with this Estimulacao and galvanism turned out to be a sinonym of all sorts of attempts at ressuscitating by electricity and as a way of curing everything, from gout Eletrica mental disease Charles Darwin himself, a serious naturalist, succumbed for a time to the quack "electrical treatment" prescribed by a doctor in Scotland, to treat his chronic gastrointestinal ills, by wearing on occasions a shock-giving belt.

In this point Eletrica our history, it was natural to arise the idea to apply electrical stimulation directly to the exposed brain. The first to do this was another Italian Italy was at the time one of the leading countries Estimulacao physiology and physicsan anatomist, physician and scientist named Luigi Rolando His name is mostly known by medical students from the Rolandic fissureor central fissure, which separates the frontal from the parietal lobes of the brain, and is visible in the surface of the cortex.

InRolando carried out several click here of lesion and stimulation of the surface of central nervous structures.

Using a voltaic pile and crude electrodes, he obtained limb movements, which became stronger in the vicinity of cerebellum. He erroneously concluded that this structure was the brain's "source of vital motor energy".

His pioneerism was assured, though. Rolando was thus able to give a satisfactory answer to the first question only, i. The answer to the second question would have to wait 40 years, until best stimulation techniques could be discovered, with a finer control over duration, intensity and area of stimulation. These techniques were developed on the basis of the advance of knowledge about electromagnetism.

Between andother electrophysiologists, such as the Italian researcher Carlo Mateucciand the German researcher Emil Heinrich du Bois-Reymondperfectioned a great diversity of devices and techniques to carry out single or repetitive stimulations, with short pulses or trains, and a finer control over current intensity and duration. They used electromagnetic switches and inductors, finally substituting the galvanic stimulation with voltaic currents and the primitive tools of Galvani, Volta, Aldini and Rolando.

In the inductor stimulator, intensity and duration of the electrical current are controlled by the rapid linear displacement of a wire coil over a magnetic core. Repetitive trains of stimulation with a precise onset and offset were generated by rotary switches and mercury pool switches, or electromechanical metronomes.

In honor of Michael Faraday, the first physician to investigate in depth the generation of electrical currents by means of changing magnetic fields, this new type of stimulation was named as "faradic", in contraposition to the "galvanic" or "voltaic" method curiously enough, the term "galvanic" was created by Volta, and Aldini, a bitter foe of Volta, created the term "voltaic".

So much for Italian scientific politics! French physiologist Claude Bernard was another scientist who was busy creating new and more precise tools for electrical stimulation. In he developed a peculiar instrument, which incorporated a miniature voltaic pile to a pair of metallic insulated tweezers.

He used these in his awarded classical investigations on the action of curare, a South American plant poison used for arrows, in the blocking of the neuromuscular junction. In recognition of all these contributions, made in the relatively short period of 60 years of scientific evolution, neuroscience historians consider that Luigi Galvani was the father of neurophysiology, Claude Bernard was the fater of experimental physiology, and DuBois-Reymond was the father of experimental electrophysiology.

Eduard Hitzig Gustav Fritsch Unfortunately, the experiments by these forefathers of neurophysiology were entirely made within the limits of peripheral nervous system. It was clear that, until the middle of the 19th century, despite Rolando's experiments, many neuroscientists believed that the brain was insensitive to external changes and was electrically inexcitable.

This was going to change dramatically under the impact of new animal experiments using electrical stimulation. Animal Experimentation The pioneering work of mapping the brain cortex with electrical stimulation was done in by two German physiologists, Gustav Theodor Fritsch and Julius Eduard Hitzig They carried out experiments of localized electrical stimulation of the brain cortex of several animals, specially dogs.

Their main work was published as an article. This classic work of neuroscience was named Über die elektrische Erregbarkeit des Grosshirns About the Electrical Excitabilty of the Brain. Fritsch and Hitzig obtained in animals contralateral movements of the head, neck and limbs upon stimulating several points in the cortex. This contralaterality of movement was already known since French physiologist Pierre Flourens had lesioned and stimulated mechanically and chemically the brain lobes of pigeons and rabbits, between and More that that, however, they achieved a finer mapping of cortical motor function, because they noted that movements in the rear limbs were obtained by stimulation of the upper parts of the frontal cortex, while movements of front limbs and neck were obtained by stimulation of the lower more ventral parts of the cortex.

We can truthfully say that this was one of the most important findings of the history of neuroscience, because it answered the second question, i.

Their publication generated a lot of scientific excitement and inspired a great deal of similar experiments. The giant of this research line was to be the British physiologist and physician Read article Ferrierwho, inspired on the experiments by Fritsch and Hitzig, carried out a number of more advanced and systematic experiments, around He stimulated with a higher precision the cortex of dogs and monkeys.

In the later, he was able to Eletrica a map with 29 different functions across the cortex, which he identified and numbered. In this way, Ferrier created the basic methodology Estimulacao be used for the next three quarters of century. Ferrier most audaciously transposed his results with monkeys to the human brain, by producing an analogous map of functional localization, Estimulacao.

This Eletrica experimentally unsubstantiated until the first decades of the next century, but it was very important to launch a new era in the medical applications of cerebral localization studies, especially for neurosurgery. Neurologists and neurosurgeons could now predict the localization of a tumor or lesion on the brain, on the basis of its consequences on the neurologial examination of motor and sensory functions. He was the preponent of the so-called doctrine of hierarchical organization of brain functions, which became the basis of clinical neurological practices afterwards.

By studying brain lesions which were associated to motor epileptical manifestations, Jackson was able to discover several functional areas of the brain, and Ferrier had the strongest desire to prove that Jackson was right, and that this knowledge would be useful for practical purposes.

Ferrier was also a pioneer in the combined use of lesion and stimulation techniques in the same areas of the brain, with the aim of testing consistent hypothesis about the proposed maps. He lesioned the areas in dog and monkey brains which, upon stimulation, produced some movements. Consistency of mapping could be achieved when the same voluntary or involuntary movements would be lost due to the lesions. In dozens of classical experiments, Ferrier was able to prove this assertion several times, convincing him on the reality of an utmost one-to-one mapping of function in the brain.

He was opposed by many neuroscientists, who were still reluctant to believe that such preciseness of localization was real. Many defended the idea that the cortex was equipotential in function and had no specialization. Ferrier was involved in a famous scientific dispute with German neurophysiologist and neurologist Friedrich Goltzwho could not observe focal disruption of motor and behavioral functions in dogs, despite extensive cortical lesions.

Ferrier was able to demonstrate inadequacies and experimental errors in Goltz's experiments and publicly won the dispute.

A few decades later, Sir Charles Scott Sherringtona British physiologist, working with young American neurosurgeon Harvey Http:// CushingEstimulacao Eletrica T E N S, did a more extensive Eletrica corticl mapping study in great apes gorillas an chimpanzeesincorroborating and extending Ferrier's findings.

They also made the Estimulacao experimental proof that the cortical click which corresponded in humans to speech expression the so-called Broca's area, thus named because it was discovered in clinical cases studied by French neurologist and anthropologist Paul Pierre Broca The area demarcated by Sherrington and Cushing was the same which generated an elevation of vocal cords in the gorilla.

Cushing Mapeamento do córtex motor de um gorila, feito por Sherrington e Cushing em Mapping the Human Brain Sherrington and Cushing obtained a more detailed mapping because the stimulation techniques were much more perfectioned at the time.

By working with the great apes for the first time, which are the closest evolutionary relatives to human beings, they opened up the pathway for investigations of human brain by using electrical stimulation. The human brain was for centuries considered a "forbidden territory" to the surgeon's scalpel and the experimentalist's hand, due to religious, ideological and medical prejudices. It was only in the second half of the 19th century that neurosurgeons had the courage to operate on intracranial tumors and other lesions.
