Electroacupuncture Promotes Proliferation of Amplifying Neural Progenitors and Preserves Quiescent Neural Progenitors from Apoptosis to Alleviate Depressive-Like and Anxiety-Like Behaviours
EA alleviates the CUS-induced depressive-like and anxiety-like behaviours. One- or two-week EA significantly decreases the immobility time (a) and increases the climbing time (b) in the forced swimming test. (c) One-week EA treatment significantly elevates the open-arm entries but not two-week EA treatment. (d) Stressed rats spend more time in the open arms in the elevated plus-maze test after one-week EA treatment but not two-week EA treatment. (e) One-week EA treatment reverses the declined rearing number of the stressed rats in the open field test. The results are expressed as the mean ± SEM. # and ##, versus Model group.
