The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of acupuncture on cognitive deficits and oxidative stress in cerebral multi-infarction rats. The results showed that acupunctural treatment attenuated memory impairment induced by cerebral multi-infarction, as evaluated by shortened escape latency and increased swimming time of rats with memory impairment(More)
Vascular dementia (VaD) is the second most common cause of dementia in the world today. In this paper, we observed the effect of acupuncture on memory impairment, apoptosis and expression of Bcl-2 and Bax in hippocampus of cerebral multi-infarction rats. The results indicated that acupuncture significantly improved memory impairment induced by cerebral(More)
The senescence-accelerated mouse strain P6 (SAMP6) is an inbred mouse that represents a clinically relevant model of senile osteoporosis. However, whether osteoporotic SAMP6 mice have cognitive deficits remains largely unexplored. Here, we used Morris water maze to assess reference memory and working memory performance in SAMP6 mice and SAMR1 controls, at 4(More)
Aging is the greatest risk factor for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Age-dependent alterations of cell signaling play an important role in the onset of AD. The serine/threonine kinase Akt is a critical cell signaling to neuronal survival. Using the senescence-accelerated mouse SAMP10, we investigated the effect of aging on AKT(More)

Previous studies have shown that 2 Hz but not 100 Hz electroacupuncture (EA) stimulation released beta-endorphin in PAG of the rat to induce analgesia. The present study was undertaken to see whether dynorphin plays a role in PAG in mediating analgesia induced by low and high frequency EA. Injection of affinity purified dynorphin antibody (1:350,000 in RIA(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of "Sanjiao Acupuncture Therapy" on hippocampal selective neuron loss and astrocytosis in senile accelerated mice (SAM) so as to reveal its mechanism underlying improvement of Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS A total of 18 seven-month old male SAM prone 8 (SAMP 8) were selected and randomly allocated into model group,(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of acupuncture on p130 expression in neocortex and hippocampus of Senescence Accelerated Mouse/Prone (SAMP) 10 so as to explore its underlying molecular mechanism in treating dementia and aging-related diseases. METHODS Thirty SAMP 10 were randomly divided into model, acupuncture, and non-acupoint groups with 10 cases in(More)
