This review summarized some articles on the effect of the septal area in acupuncture analgesia. The data showed that the pain threshold of animal was increased when septal area was stimulated by electro-acupuncture, and that electrical stimulation of septal area had a marked inhibitory effect on the pain discharges of cells in parafascicular nucleus of(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on the expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) in the subventricular zone (SVZ) of Parkinson's disease (PD) rats, so as to explore its mechanisms underlying improvement of PD. METHODS Eighteen SD rats were randomized into normal control,(More)
UNLABELLED To observe the effects of electroacupuncture(EA) stimulation of "Zusanli"(ST 36) and "Sanyinjiao"(SP 6) at different time-points of a day on the expression of c-fos and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) in rats with ketamine addiction. METHODS A total of 56 SD rats were randomized into control group,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to explore the neural protective effect of polysaccharide of Gastrodia elata Blume (PGB) and electro-acupuncture (EA) on focal cerebral ischemia rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 40 Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 5 groups (normal group, model group, PGB group, EA group and PGB+EA group). The model was(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) intervention combined with medication (Gastrodin) on changes of neurological function and expression of Nogo-A and Nogo-A receptor (NgR) in the frontal lobe cortex around the ischemic loci of focal cerebral ischemia (FCI) rats, so as to explore its mechanism underlying improvement of(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture(EA) combined with medication on changes of expression of Nestin, glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and neuron specific enolase (NSE) in the hippocampal CA 1 and CA 3 regions of focal cerebral ischemia (FC1) rats, so as to analyze its mechanisms underlying neuroprotection. METHODS Fifty male SD(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) intervention at different time in a day on the expression of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and c-fos in the Nucleus Accumbens (NAc) so as to explore its mechanism underlying improvement of ketamine addiction. METHODS A total of 56 Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into normal control, normal saline(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) combined with Compound Salviae Miltiorrhizae Tablet (CSMT) on the expressions of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in hippocampus CA1 of chronic cerebral ischemia (CCI) rats. METHODS Totally 50 Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into the(More)
Distribution of nitric oxide synthase (NOS)-positive neurons of cingulate areas and its changes following bilateral common carotid artery occlusion were investigated with nicotinamide adenosine dinucleotide phosphate diaphoras (NADPH-d) reaction. Positively stained NOS-neurons were observed in the areas 24, 32, and 25 of the anterior cingulate cortex, and(More)
The efferent projections of septal nuclei from the brain areas relating to pain in the rat were studied with WGA-HRP and HRP methods. The results are obtained as follows: The septal areas project widely to some brain areas relating to pain, for instance, locus coeruleus, raphe nuclei, periaqueductal gray, thalamus, hypothalamus, habenular, amygdaloid(More)
