Spinal Serotonergic and Opioid Receptors Are Involved in Electroacupuncture-Induced Antinociception at Different Frequencies on ZuSanLi (ST 36) Acupoint

Figure 7

Pretreatment with 8-OH-DPAT influences EAc-induced antinociception in different frequencies on the 1st (a, b, c), 3rd (d, e, f), and 7th (g, h, i) days after intrathecal cannulation. (a), (d), (g): 1 mA, 2 Hz EAc; (b), (e), (h): 1 mA, 10 Hz EAc; (c), (f), (i): 1 mA, 100 Hz EAc, : initiation point of EAc except sham group. ○: sham group. : ACSF (artificial CSF). ▲: 8-OH-DPAT (DPAT, 5-HT1A agonist, 0.5 μg/10 μL, i.t.). ■: DPAT (1 μg/10 μL, i. t.); : DPAT (2 μg/10 μL, i.t.). Data are shown as mean ± S.E. , , and compared to the ACSF group ( ).
