Relationship between electroacupuncture analgesia and descending pain inhibitory mechanism of nucleus raphe magnus
&NA; Raphe‐spinal (R‐S) neurons were identified in the nucleus raphe magnus (NRM). The conduction velocity of their axons was calculated to be about 15–60 m/sec. The great majority of R‐S neurons didExpand
