Is there ever any electrical activity inside the body, normal or abnormal, minor or major, that results in electrolysis?

For instance, there is a large amount of water in our bodies, and although electrolytes may make it conductive, does any of it ever interact with our body's electrical currents and separate into oxygen and hyrogen?

Just no.
There is no electrical current in our body but ionic imbalances.

What about the nervous system or the brain? As I understand it, there are electrical impulses used for communications and such. What about the short term memory?

Hi,

There is no electrical current in our body but ionic imbalances.

This sentence is also valid for neurons.
short term memory or long term one are supposed involving peptides.
