measuring electrical impulses in the body.

I am interested in trying to use a picoscope to look at electrical activity in the body, electrical impulses in muscles etc. I have no idea if this is possible, and I am not a biologist. I imagine the kit in hospitals has sophisticated electronics in the front end to amplify and filter the signals but can you help.

The sophisticated electronics in the front end would be needed as an add on with our scope if you were going to look at this level of signal, as such they are not suitable for this application.
