It really bothers me when people write something here for the sole purpose of filling the box.

comment spinal cord lesion and result in somatic sensation
For the sensation aspect, dermatomes are a big hint. They will give you a rough idea of some of the motor neuron projections. I'd recommend trying to fill in all that you can and ask specific questions about the portions you don't understand (in the form of "Okay, I know that X ascending tract has been likely damaged, so there's likely to not be any information about Y propagating above a certain level...so, will this mean...") rather than just dropping off the assignment. This is a very useful exercise :)

comment Biopython error
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a bioinformatics software development issue.

comment Thoughts precede neuron firing or vise-verse?
I didn't read the paper that you linked, but the reaction time literature supports that assertion as well. See some of the papers in the early 2000s by JF Kalaska. The work is done in primates, so it's difficult to gauge "perception" of the movement. I'm sure there's been human work since then, I just haven't looked for it.

comment To understand clearly extraintestinal diseases
@Masi In that case, the manifestation wouldn't be extraintestinal, it would be directly related to the intestine.

(as an aside, I have never used that product, but most of the "consumer" type headsets are unreliable at best)
