Electrical wires transmit electrical currents (electrons) along the wire and are encased in a insulated jacket that keeps the wires from short circuiting with neighboring wires so the electrical current can travel quickly and efficiently along the wire. Nerves resemble these wires in that the axons of the nerve fibers are similar looking as they are enclosed in a myelinated sheath. Nuerons do not transmit electrical currents, but rather they transmit charged ions.

Electrical wires have plastic covering as when electric current flows through the copper wires and mistake we hold it so we may get an electric shock.

Electric current flows through wires, but to transmit electric power you need two wires with a voltage between them, connected to a power source.

it works because all the wires inside of it and there is over 200 wires inside of a electric blanket

because the wires cannot withstand the load

A break in the wires of an electric current will break or cut the circuit and stop the current from flowing.

The most likely explanation is that the equipment used to stimulate the nerves uses a DC voltage to do so.

Household electric wires are covered with plastic or other materials as insulation to prevent short circuits and fires, and to prevent electric shocks.
