The resistance in the human body is about 250,000 ohms. Therefore,
you can put enough voltage and amperage on the body to get electrical
conduction. The flow of the electricity will be through the blood, not the
True the brute force of electrical current will cause a neuron to fire.
This is like placing a wire next to a line of dominos and running current
though wire causing it to explode. This pushes the first domino over which
pushes the next over, etc....
The mistakes you are making will be repeated by others so don't feel
at least you are thinking and interested in the topic.

Further, to be more down to earth, let us experience the static of dry
winter. When we touch something, electricity flows out of our body,
discharging our bioelectricity in the form of a "huge" spark.
this is not evident enough, try using our own body as an electrical
conductor. By conneting oneself in
the middle of a live wire, one becomes an integral part of that
conducting system. Electricity flows from one end of the body to the
exit point into that live wire. Therefore, electrons do flow through
live organisms, and therefore undoubtedly also possible in the nerve
action potential flows.
