1 doctor agrees
In brief: No
No, the excitatory level of the neurons in the spinal cord is based on physical or chemical stimulation largely in the peripheral nervous system.
Mental distraction is a cognitive function (or in some cases, dysfunction) that has no direct correlate with the spinal cord.
