Electroacupuncture (EA) is used to treat chronic stress; however, its mechanism(s) of action in allaying stress remains unclear. [...] Key Method Before exposure to the cold, two groups were treated with either EA St₃₆, or Sham-EA, before 10 days of cold stress. The EA St₃₆ animals demonstrated a significant decrease in peripheral HP hormones (ACTH and CORT) compared with stress animals (P<0.05). These effects were specific; rats receiving Sham-EA had elevation of these hormones, similar to the stress-only…Expand
