The purpose of the present work is to study whether the analgesia of "Zusanli" EA was mainly produced by its noxious effect. The antidromic C waves on N. peroneus communis innervating the area of "Zusanli" point were recorded. When "Zusanli" point was stimulated by trains of stimuli, the amplitude of the antidromic C wave was obviously decreased due to(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of acupuncture stimulation of bilateral "Hegu" (LI 4) and "Taichong" (LR 3, the so-called "Four Gate Points") on learning-memory ability, hippocampal interleukin-1 (IL-1) P and IL-2 and amyloid beta (Abeta) 42 levels in Alzheimer's disease (AD) rats,so as to reveal its underlying mechanism in improving AD. METHODS Male SD(More)
Our previous work have demonstrated that the stimulation of somatosensory area II (Sm II) of cerebral cortex or N. accumbens (NAc) could activate nucleus raphe magnus (NRM), producing analgesia. The aim of this work is to study whether the effect of activation of Sm II on neurons in NRM is related to NAc. The spontaneous discharges of NRM neurons and their(More)
