Sample text

Our results indicate that acupuncture modulation might be related to the excitatory/inhibitory amino acids system, neuropeptidergic system, nitric oxide system, etc. The EA could inhibit experimental epilepsy by increasing the release of Ȗ-amino butyric acid (GABA), taurine, and glycine, and decreasing the release of glutamate in hippocampus (Wang and Cheng 1994a; Liu and Cheng 1995; Yan et al. 1999). We also found that their receptors including N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) (Wang and Cheng 1994a), non-NMDA, and GABAA (Liu and Cheng 1997) might be involved in the epileptic activity and the antiepileptic effect of EA.

2005; Zheng et al. 2005; Xu et al. 2005, Liu and Huang 2007). Unfortunately, the fundamental nature of the meridians is still unclear, and indeed, there are many controversial results in this field (Xie et al. 2007; Xie 2008). Till date, the questions regarding the specificity of the acupoints have been explored in several ways: comparing the effects of true points versus the sham points, studying the unique physiological features of the acupoints as well as the anatomical structure at the acupoints, and studying the nerves activated by acupuncture at the acupoints.

The complexity of these tissues are presumed to be responsible for the acupuncture sensation at acupoints. Type Ċ and ċ fibers of the afferent nerves may mediate the afferent transmission of the acupuncture signals. In the central nervous system (CNS), the spinal cord, brainstem, hypothalamus, thalamus, and cerebral cortex integrate the afferent signals of the acupuncture and form regulatory outputs via afferent pathways. In addition, there exists a strong relationship between the meridian-points and viscera in terms of nerve connection.
