All of those are coming into play but the interesting thing is that with some kind of feedback device like the nia, it is actually possible to do something similar to noise cancellation. Well.. let me rephrase that ...
For example, when you talk, the jaw muscles and tongue create some very strong signals, in fact, those are the signals that are primarily used by Noob's to control the nia. Yet, with a bit of practice, I can control the device perfectly fine while talking or drinking fluids and if I look at the raw signals, they are being suppressed. The only way this can happen is if I can either tell my muscles not to generate electrical potentials or else, if my body finds a way of suppressing the output by overlaying some counterphase signal to cancel the input into the sensors.
I believe that the latter is probably true on a very "primal level", how that would work is completely beyond me but there is absolutely nothing that would say that the body is not capable of performing such task... it only has never been documented because nobody has looked for it.
The effects of music and euphorics ... it is funny because we are talking about this stuff all the time and BTW, the original invention is from Yellow Springs in your neck of the woods so maybe you want to talk directly to Mr. Brainfingers a.k.a. Andrew .. (can't post contact info but you have enough clues to figure it out from here .. if not, shoot me an email)
